Proper Primer and Powder Storage?
Peter Piper picked a peck of proper primers....
This may be an idiot question. I'm preparing to acquire or build the things I need to start shotshell reloading, and eventually, pistol and rifle reloading, as well. I've been doing a lot of reading, and also browsing info on the internet. I'm confused about storing primers. I'm told my primer storage location needs to be secure. Needs to use at least one-inch thick wood as insulation from heat. Needs to be lockable. Needs to have adequate venting to prevent gas build-up and needs to have at least one weak wall that will open at very low pressure.
How do YOU store your primers so that they are in a location that can be secured, insulated from heat, ventilated sufficiently to prevent gas/pressure build-up, strong and secure with one or more weak sides that will fail easily and prevent an explosion?
I've seen a lot of photos of peoples' reloading setups. I've seen powder stored in small, portable powder magazines. I've seen powder stored on/above/below the loading bench. I've seen powder stored in shelves, next to the bench. I've seen powder stored in the next room. I've seen plans for vastly oversized powder magazines that will hold well in excess of 50 lbs of powder in a residential situation. If I have the chance to setup exactly how I want to store my powder, how should I store it?
