Would that be good for powder/primer storage? Anyone else have an issue with high temps in the summer and how do you store your primers/powder?
Follow SAAMI guidelines for storing powder and primers and you should be okay.

Current primers and powders should last years and years in open air as long as you don't have high humidity.

I wouldn't recommend storing them in a place where fast pressure increase could potentially create a bomb (a fridge).

Just imagine the warehouses these powders and primers come from... hot, cramped, etc. They do just fine...

The fate of the wounded rest in the hands of the ones who apply the first dressing.
