I was going to stock up on my favorite percussion caps. Do these things go bad with age? How long are they good for?

I don't believe they do. IMHO the biggest issue is moisture. keep them in a dry place and they should last a long damn time.

Keep dry and cool.

I have heard they do online, but it hasn't been my experience.

I bought a very old tin of winchester caps. What ever is inside them that makes them go bang was all dried up and on the bottom of the tin. I have no idea on the exact age or how they were stored all those years but yes they will eventually go bad.
