I have a question about how old is to old for ammo if stored properly in sealed ammo cans? What are the risks?

I've shot WW II stuff before without any problems. But it was clean and always stored properly.

I've shot WW1 .303 but you had better clean up extremely well afterwards with the corrosive primers. As long as ammo is properly stored and not corroded it should be GTG.

In general you should be fine if properly stored as you described. Risk, I could see it not going boom more than anything.

One risk is $hooting ammo that has a collector value. I am one box shy of a full brick of .22 ammo that is worth 25 bucks a box. Ooops! Duh! Still kicking myself.......

From what I've read and been told it's more about the conditions the powder is kept in. Temps and temp swings are the biggest factor to long term storage.

Hello,

I am not a real believer in shooting older ammunition. Quality guns deserve quality cartridges. But if you must; research whether they are loaded with corrosive primers....that is a good way to ruin your gun.

When I was chasing my Distinguished Pistol badge; I had to shoot the ammunition (not corrosive primed) that was provided for us. It was of marginal condition and unknown history....my gun survived the experience.
