If the old ammo were actually using black powder, that has an autoignition temperature of around 464F, so burning cloth wouldn't work there unless the flame could come into direct contact with the powder.
Thanks. If old blackpowder, would we not have a nitro crystal issue, which might solve the ignition issue the exciting way.
