An exploding round isn't particularly dangerous, at worse it will spray some casing fragments around. Dangers of exploding ammunition tend to be exaggerated. There are plenty of documented experiments involving cooking-off ammo is various situautions, including ovens.

A loaded gun stored in a oven is a different matter. If the round in the chamber goes off, it will likely send the bullet through the oven wall, and could hurt someone outside the oven.

You are quite right...i have seen shotgun shells tossed in fires with little more than explosive effect..birdshot and they tended to burn or pop

I grew up with waxed paper shotshells
