Kept in a cool dry dark place in an airtight storage box such as a ammo can & it will last a long, long time.................
When all else fails.
I socked ammo away in college, then shot it over 20 years later with no unforseen results.
Much ammo from WWII is still routinely fired today. If it was quality ammo then, kept properly, it is still quality ammo.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.

Ammo is hard to kill. Store it most anywhere and it will work for many many years.
Just walking on the edge of of my grave.
Anybody know about any unforeseen results by vacuum packing ammo. Either in the box or individually.
I used up some WWII ammo very recently with no issues. It has always been kept in the original packaging (cardboard) and left in the safe.
I don't know why you would but go ahead and vacuum pack it. you can even shoot it in a vacuum as it makes its own oxygen.
I had 5 boxes of 9mm Blazer CCI 115 gr at my family house while I was overseas in Germany for 5 years. They finally got fired in 2008.
