How long does ammo keep?
A. Quality ammo kept in a cool, dry place could easily last 5 years or longer. Storage of ammuntions in areas of high temperature or high humidity should be avoided. Ammo left in areas of high temperature, such as the trunk or glove compartments of a closed vehicle, will cause deterioration of both the primer and the poweder charge. Ammunition stored in a cool, dry place has been known to last for many years, some dating back to the World War II era. For carry ammo, I’d rotate it every 6 months. 071X122699 SHOOTING LEAD AMMO Q.
