    Ammo Loading / Reloading and Storing

    Looking into storing all the things I will need to load/reload ammo.

    If the powder is stored in cool, dry place... is the shelf life really nearly limitless?
    I've seen ammo from the early 1950's that still fires really well. They were in sealed cans and stored nicely.

    I'm thinking modern powder, stored properly, should be good for longer than I'll be alive... or am I way off base here?

    Appreciate your input.

    You should be fine. My Uncle and his friends who are MUCH older then me, LOL have powder from the 1960's and it is still good.

    Be safe!
