    I dropped a spare mag in the snow today. I immediately disassembled the mag and dried all the components and rounds. Snow got into the hollow point on the top round, only a small amount of moisture was on the other rounds. Do you guys think I'm ok to continue carrying this ammo as my backup rounds, or should I dispose of it and replace it?

    You will need to immediately box this up, along with any other ammo that may have talked with the suspect cartridges, and ship to me by UPS. I'll dispose of it for you- no charge, 'cause that's just the kind of guy I am.

    Seriously, it should be fine.

    It may get cold here, but snow?

    It gets a little hard to shovel sunshine.

    Thanks, Cane. The Wyfe is on cruise in the Caribbean and spending time in Boynton Beach this week with her sister and friends, and I ran out of fuel oil tonight!
