Primer storage

I have some metal 50cal military storage boxes that have a gasket seal. Can primers be stored long term in these? They are probably air and water tight, although I have not tested that.

Re: Primer storage

I have some primers that are 10 years old that have been stored in ammo cans and they work fine. I put a desiccant pouch in the can with them and that absorbs any stray moisture.

Re: Primer storage

That's what I use also. One can will hold over 5000 primers easily, depending on primer box size and how you pack 'em....JohnnyK.
