Not sure just how valid that is, as an example the contractor that blows up an AK in the video, KB's (KaBooms) happen from time to time, there are a lot of possible causes, sabotaged ammo is pretty low on the list.
Sabotaged shells for artillery, sabotaged grenades or mortar shells that detonate in the tube are more effective. Most people who buy surplus ammo its in sealed tins directly from the manufacturer, and because of the packaging can't be altered in transit. Loose ammo in a box would be a situation where sabotaged ammo would be more likely encountered.
Then there is our savior, Øbama is going to save us from surplus ammo by banning importation, he always has our best interest in mind...
