Normal Soldier usually do not destory those stuff. For that, you will need EOD Unit.
Usually, when you found a weapon cache, you will call EOD and wait for them to show up. They will then blow up the cache and any weapon within. The reason why you need EOD is, those ammo cache were usually booby trapped.
Basically, all you need is gunpowder and a couple of grenade. The usual method is to scatter around some .50BMG round(Probably around 10-20) inside the weapon cache, and then pop a couple of grenade in it, then boommmmmm
C4 is useless on this occasion, if you bunch a bunch of C4 in an ammo crate, you will just literally blow it "up" - Upward. it can usually still be able to use (Especially AKs) after it was hit by C4.
The reason why .50BMG round was use is to use its gunpowder to create a burning effect, thus melt the core of a weapon.
Soldier usually "play" with captured weapon before they were blown up or disable. For 2 obivious reason.
1.) to test if the weapon fires
2.) for fun.....
if you get some memoriable weapon, you may want to disable it and take it away. But usually, you are not allow to fire AK when you are in combat.
