If it is stored properly, small arms ammo will be reliable for at least 70-80 years. Keep ammo in a cool place, if possible. My ammo is stored in Army surplus ammo cans except for that which came in sealed metal cans. I have .45-70 military ammo that was made for gatling guns in the 1880-1890s: About every other round fires.
My 100 year old .30 Army (.30-40) ammo has about two duds out of five. I have other commercial and military ammo in many calibers that is over 80 years old. Recently I came into several thousand rounds of military .45 auto ammo that was made in the 1930s: Every round fires.
Most of my old ammo is corrosive or suspected of being corrosive. It gets fired anyway and the gun gets cleaned very soon after firing.

Mil Surp .50 cal ammo cans. The only way to store it. Sealed and with a dessicant pack in 'em.
