    Gun show ammo

    Went to a gun show today and there was a lot of ammunition for sale. 9mm wasn't overstocked but there was enough. I found some Ranger I thought was interesting price wise but some of the boxes looked like they might qualify for C&R status. Couple that with the Federal Hydra Shoks on the table and I stated to wonder how fresh the ammo was. Any pointers on how to determine manufacturing date of the big SD brands? How long is too long to suit on the shelf?

    Quality factory ammo has a longer lifespan than you if stored properly.

    There is usually a production code stamped on the bottom of the box. It appears all manufacturers use a different system, I have never been able to figure them out. The last time I wanted a production date I just called the company and they told me when it was produced.
