Howdy all,

What would you think is the lifespan of shotgun ammunition (OO buckshot, U.S. commercial manufacturers) if it is kept in a vehicle (AKA hell- high heat, humidity)?

What do police agencies do? Do they cycle the ammunition every 6 months? A year?

Thanks,
Cheese

Thanks for the response. I will cycle the shells through on a six month basis. I can use the old shells as range fodder.

Again,
Thanks.

Oh, my Mossberg doesn't scratch the shells. It downright chews on them! I will keep an eye open for rust.

Thanks again,

we cycle our ammo here once a year. also if humidity is an issue consider some of the duck hunting loads.
