What should I do put them in some ziplocks and keep them out of the dirt?

I shot some '43 headstamp .45ACP a few months back, 350rds, all went bang! So if it's military ball, I'd say 60+ easily depending on storage conditions.

Ammo cans. Or use something like a Food Saver, put them in boxes, then put htem in the plastic bag and seal it.


Things that kill ammo:
1. Moisture
2. Temp changes

it's all about storage. it you keep it in cardboard boxes in your garage, probably not too long, but in sealed ammo cans with dessicant.... it'll probably out live you

I have reloads [38spl] loaded in the 60s that shot fine. USGI .45 match ammo from the 60s that still kick but in accuracy dept.

less than a week. Send any ammo older than that to me for proper disposal...it's for the children.
