I was going through some cartons in my closet , and found a couple boxes of .357 Mag.
Federal 158gr JHP - nickel cases- #357E
Over the years , I have moved several times , and put things in commercial storage for
varying time periods.
So this ammo has certainly been exposed to winter AND summer temps. , not to mention
widely varying humidity.
Box looks normal just a bit tattered , ammo is clean - still looks like new.
Judging by other items in the carton with it , I bought this ammo in the early 1980s ( maybe 1983 )
So , is it still safe to shoot - would you ?
dont forget about all of the 'surplus' ammo for sale at discounted prices from mail order catalogs n stuff.. The pressures MAY be a little higher, but nothing to worry about.
i don't see why not. I had some that was given to me from the late 70's that were from a house with no AC. I had a couple rounds that sounded half full. had 1 split second hangfire. but I would say go for it. You do have a wheel gun right? not a deagle?
