Ignition temp varies with powder, but a typical double base powder auto ignites at about 320 F - 360F.

As said, storing ammo at elevated temps for YEARS is not good for the ammo, but under circumstances described, likely not an issue. I WOULD rotate my carry ammo every few months, but I do that anyway.
