Snow + Ammo
I dropped a spare mag in the snow today. I immediately disassembled the mag and dried all the components and rounds. Snow got into the hollow point on the top round, only a small amount of moisture was on the other rounds. Do you guys think I'm ok to continue carrying this ammo as my backup rounds, or should I dispose of it and replace it?

You will need to immediately box this up, along with any other ammo that may have talked with the suspect cartridges, and ship to me by UPS. I'll dispose of it for you- no charge, 'cause that's just the kind of guy I am.

Seriously, it should be fine.

What's Snow?

It may get cold here, but snow?

It gets a little hard to shovel sunshine.

You'll be fine, keep carrying it.

cleaned immediatly not a problem. if it set for weeks might have trouble. when i was packing yesterday for my hunting tri today i opened my ruck and found 3 20round boxes of federal xm193? 55grn that sat in the bottom of the keel storage locker in my boat for the last 3 months. slight surface corrosion but gonna pop em off anyway as plinking rounds.

Me, being a girl and all, would have blow dried it with my hair dryer. :D
