    I was present for tens of thousands of rounds downrange.  I was OIC of an armory ( lucky me).  The Army procedures make such an accident damn near impossible and it would end the career of every officer and NCO in that chain of command.  I have no idea how the marines do it, but I am well versed in the army way, and issuance and custody of ammunition for training is taken very seriously and live rounds are deadly ordnance and deadly ordnance is inspected twice.  The only way I can see it happening is a trooper breaking regs and not turning in unused ammo from a previous exercise and then bringing it back and loading it into the mag himself.

      impossible.

      Each and every time it happened, they remained sure it was impossible.

      It certainly did not end the career of every officer and NCO in that chain of command, although I certainly doubt it was seen as a bright point.

      The possibility of failure exists in all human systems.
