I was cleaning my garage and found a case of 12g that I bought. . .oh. . .probably back in '92.

Any problem using them?

Thanks.

shoulnt be, as long as they werent soaking in water or something :) most ammunition should last multiple decades when stored properly.

Reminds me of Mad Max 2 where he finds some shells that disintegrate when he touches them, and the other shell that only smokes and doesn't discharge when he fires it.

Back in the mid '80's I inherited an old Stevens 12 gauge and a bunch of ammo to go with it. Most of it shot just fine; even though the casings were made of paper not plastic! Not sure I'd shoot ammo that old again.... especially not knowing how it was stored!
