>>#13, Gunpowder is fairly unstable, it would ignite just fine from a lighter.
Also, technically, whether it's been fired or not, a bullet is still just a bullet, you would need the entire cartridge.
Also, you'd launch the case out the back of the tube at a speed close to that at which the bullet is launched, so you'd have a very bad day

That would be relevant if bullets actually used gunpowder (they haven't done for a very long time). Modern munitions use cordite (first used in the early 20th century I think).

If you go and look for some 'torture test' videos (use search terms like '<name of gun> meltdown') you can sometimes see/hear examples of what is commonly called 'cooking off', which is where the chamber is so hot that rounds are prematurely detonated before the firing pin even has a chance to ignite the primer.
Here's an example: www.youtube.com/watch?v=BSizVpfqFtw

Like with anything, the autoignition temperature for gunpowder or in this case, smokeless powder is still fairly high, it'll readily react with sparks or open flame, but you'd have to heat it up considerably more than you would do with the heat from a machine gun, especially because the casings help insulate the rounds. They also aren't exposed to the heat for terribly long. In contrast, old cap-and-ball revolvers were/are known for occasionally suffering from chain-fires, where sparks would fly out of the cylinder being fired and ignite adjacent cylinders, which is why people will seal them with something between loading and firing.

Yeah, I know, but the video is actually from Australia. You can hear the guy's accent in the actual video.
