uh, I'm almost entirely sure the RFID would be there for the exclusive purpose of identifying the ammunition, and has nothing to do with it's
operation. Producing a shock sensitive primer that doesn't explode when struck if a tiny printed electronic device says not to would be quite a
Also: I can't find a single source besides ATS that thinks that ammunition is being RFID chipped (except for crates and boxes, for inventory control
purposes). For it to be useful, the RFID tags would have to be programmed to contain unique information, which would have to be traceable to the
customer. an RFID tag saying "wolf performance ammunition, 7.62x39" wouldn't be helpful for anything.
IT would be much easier and helpful for law enforcement to start tagging guns.
If people were ridiculous, they could integrate inductors into the barrel, and put smart programmable devices in every bullet, and have the firearm
encode information about each shot it takes into the bullet, like how modern high caliber multi-purpose ship auto cannons program their rounds for
timed proximity mode. But then bullets would cost about 300 dollars each.
