Alright guys, most of you know I moved into a new place and I'm trying to decide the best place to store my ammo and reloading supplies which included my dies and presses. I have 2 options, my 1/4 basement or a small storage building out back. I keep all said ammo, powder, and primers in ammo cans with good seals and 4-5 dry packs I get thru my father in law. He's a pharmisist and has an endless supply. The cases are stored in clean plastic bins inside ziplock bags by caliber. I only have one press up at a time so they are wrapped in plastic bags and stored in clean boxes. Here is the situation: basement is damp, full of spiders and some of the largest slugs I've ever seen but they only come out at night and I have officially declaired WW3 on them all. This is a concern because I don't want my equipment rusting nor do I want to open a bin of brass and find a spider has made it's home there and it's recently hatched 5,000 children keeping it company. The good thing is that it's cool, stays a constant temp and is lockable since the only entrance is from the outside. It also is not very dusty due to the fact it's damp. Storage building, dry with no bugs. I could easily build a workbench here because it is just studs instead of concrete blocks. What sucks is if I were to set up there it would be subject to the constant and sometimes dramatic (30-40 degree) temp changes we see here. Also, its a bit dusty since I have to store my tractor and garden supplies there as well but not to the point that it would contaminate anything while I was loading. I'm thinking about keeping my ammo and powder, everything sealed off, in the basement and setting up my bench in the shed. I think this might give me the best of both worlds. I'll just have to take down my presses when not using them and keep them wrapped up and covered. Any thoughts?
