I'd rather be Jeeping...
I'm new here, sorry if this has been covered before. I searched, but didn't find anything. How long can you safely store ammo?

Also go to the army surplus store and get some ammo cans with good seals.This thread again... There are a couple of threads here that I have replied to thoroughly on this subject although it might take a while searching it out.
But anyways...as said previously, cool and dry is the magic formula here and is the one the military subscribes to as well. Some of the newest ammo shot in Gulf Wars Part I was 1972! It all worked as advertised, just like it was designed!!! Air tight containers, with a bag of desicant, stored in a cool dry location with minimal swings in temp are just what the doctor ordered. Store it this way and I promise commercial ammo will easily last 20-30 years with very minimal reliabiliy issues.
