Default Thoughts on ammo storage

While I personally am not a pepper and have no need for long term ammo storage ,I found this article interesting and for some maybe valuable!

Well according to that article I am doing everything right. But isn't cool, dry, dark, and sealed the best way to store pretty much anything?

It says to keep it cool, dry and dark. A lot of words to say just that.

It doesn’t have to be necessarily “cool” in storage either. That is somewhat of a myth. Look at places on earth where it’s routinely “hot” and ammo storage isn’t affected by temperature necessarily. They key to long term ammo storage is primarily “DRY.”

Now that is profound. Deep. Probably sounds better in the original Latin.

When we talk about older ammo, Iím primarily referencing ammo that was manufactured pre-1930s. After the 1930ís smokeless powder was introduced.
