A friend of mine just got back from Alaska. He went out to a cache of mine and replaced some .357 and .22 rounds for me. We went out this morning and shot up 100 rounds of .357 and 300 rounds of .22 . They have been stored in a cache close to Fairbanks since 1980. Not one fail to feed or fire. I love bullets that go Bang.

Agreed. We also have several coping saw blades laying around the cabin, and sort of hidden so it will be easy to open those glued-up tubes.

(Next time we're going to vaccum pack the rounds (in 10 and 30 rounds/bag) before putting them in the tubes.)

Have you considered using a vacuum bagger? Double seal both ends and stash.

Ya I have but my cash always seems to go else where,, figured jars are free. And use the plastic for none food items as all the glass I get I put food in,, If stored rioting Gamoke and lasts almost indefinitely the powder may Deteriorate. Over time along with the primers I'm not for sure though,,, I know I got 3 7.62x39 sealed 800rd tins from the 70's I had to open a new one last month and they where perfect. And work flawlessly

Hello from a fellow bixby prepper! You want to know how poteau got its name? An Indian was walking through the barren land and as he took a step forward he stubbed his toe screaming out to the Indian gods "OH MY PO TEAU" there you have it. Anyways I like your idea, it's innovative but you should burry them in PVC with silicone packets and you're good!

Re long term storage - was at a camp'n'shoot last and was chatting with a fellow recently retired. Bosnia, a pass through Afghanistan and finished up in Iraq just as things were winding down. He mentioned that they had been shooting up the last of the WW2 vintage .50 BMG while he was there. He didn't note any significant number of problems. I shot off some 6.5x55 Swedish from the early 60s that was still in the original packages. No problems.

Oh, and as an aside I've seen some rather handy screw-thread end caps for 4" and 6" PVC schedule 40. Given that they are meant to hold water under pressure in I should imagine that they'd keep soil moisture out, esp. With some Teflon paste on the threads. Might be easier than sawing an end off ...
