moisture and humidity would be the major cause of damage to a round. There is no magic time frame but 6 months would seem to make sense as long as there is no visible corrosion, etc. One thing to keep in mind however is the effect of chambering the same round over and over...it will eventually seat the bullet further down in the casing, leading potentially to a FTF or a KABOOM. Not a good thing in a carry gun. Rotate the top round in the mag and be sure to verify the COL against a new in box round.
