Default 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.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

It may get cold here, but snow?

It gets a little hard to shovel sunshine.

You'll be fine, keep carrying it.

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