    I've got thousands of rounds(still in original boxes) mixed in with guns in two safes...that's my story, and I'm stickin' to it.
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.

    Keep different metal casings apart (brass/nickel/steel). Keep it dry (use desiccant bags/packs etc.). Keep it safe- away from children, and where BGs can't get it easily. I keep mine in ammo cans (most of it still in boxes) with desiccant packs. And I keep my casings separate from each other.

    Please take everything I say with at least one grain of salt- I am a very sarcastic person with a very dry sense of humor.

    Yep. What he said. 20+ years of stuff piled together. Just keep dry.
    It's not a problem til they make it one!

    Very glad you mentioned the metal casing because I had not thought about that. I was given several thousands rouunds of ammo and some of it is in plastic bags. Where can I purchase ammo cans? What's the shelf life on remanufactured ammo as some of it is remanufactured....
