I don't want to offend anyone but my OCD causes me to cringe whenever I see these terms used interchangeably. 

 

They are both valid words, therefore the spell checker will pass them in whatever context you use them, correct or not.

 

Ordnance is bullets, bombs, rockets, etc.

 

Ordinance is a Gov regulation or rule.

 

Just a simple i separates the two.  Spellcheck is not always your friend.

I've always wanted to load layzer cannuns on my vehikle to shoot bad driverz, but my local ordnance does not allow such ordinance.  

 

I axed the skool principle for an exception but they sayed it was against their principal.
