i dug up an old very old box of cci primers i bought in the late 80's and had been stored in boxes of household goods in houston other parts of texas (all damp and humid) and here in wisconsin. for almost 3 decades. they still worked fine when i discovered em.
odds are they will work fine even if abused.
