I took some ammunition components into work because another

Customer Question

I took some ammunition components into work because another employee had expressed interest in my reloading hobby.
9mm case, 45ACP case, .308 Wim case and .223 case all hand been previously fired and the old primer was still inserted.
4.5 grains of Unique smokeless powder, 7.5 grans of Accurate #5 five powder, 42 grains of 4084 powder and 40 grains of Varget powder. All of the were in separate plastic vials.
in a small plastic bag I had 1 Small pistol primer, 1 small rifle primer, 1 large pistol primer, and 1 large rifle primer.
Also in another bag I had a 9mm bullet, a 45 cal bullet, a .30 cal bullet and a 22 cal. bullet.
Admittedly these are all the components that would be need to assemble 4 cartridges. However it would also require specialized tools to assemble them.
Someone saw this at work and turned me in to HR. In our employee handbook it mentions ammunition and explosives are forbidden to bring to work. Since these were the raw components and not assembled, I would not consider them either. I also think that BATF and SAMMI also do not consider the components as either explosives or ammunition.
Anyway my employment was terminated. I am wondering I wrongfully terminated>
