I have had primers for over 4 years, and they still shoot very well.

I've used primers that are at least 25 years old and never had a problem.

In fact, up until just a few years ago when I ran out, I was still using large rifle primers for my .243Win that came out of little wooden boxes that look like something from an antique shop.

I have some small rifle primers that my Grand Dad bought some 50 years ago and they still reliably go bang when used.   Just store them in right conditions and they will last longer than your lifetime provided you don't use them up first.

I have loaded primers that were well over 20 years old. No significant problems that I can recall.
