    Ammo that is stored properly will last a lifetime. My .30 caliber Krag ammo was made in 1905-07. More than half of it fires. Some 1917-18 .30 caliber ammo I have goes bang every time the trigger is pulled. All of my 1943-54 .30 caliber ammo shoots as well as when i got it in the mid 60s. Some .220 Swift handloads I have were loaded in the early 60s by me and are still very accurate.

    All my ammo is kept in military ammunition cans.

    Additional ammo storage advice.

    There is just no more room in my safe and I have been toying with the idea of moving some out to my secured (fairly insulated) workshop shed. I read in this post not to store in sheds and was wondering why. Mine has a wood floor and I can construct some specially designed shelves or insulated box that is behind other stuff and hidden.

    Some is already in ammo cans and I plan on getting more to house the new stuff coming in. The reusable medium desiccant packs have caught interest as well.

    It does get cold here in the high desert and some wet snow falls a few times over the winter, other than that it is pretty dry.

    I would appreciate advice.
