Re: Primer storage

I have primers from the late 60's that shoot fine, stored indoors, outdoors and in
several different climates. I wouldn't leave them out at -40 but other than that indoors
or a basement and don't worry about them.

Re: Primer storage

I would be concerned about basement in case of the flooding, so store them high or in some sort of zip bags so they would float...

Re: Primer storage

Cold won't bother primers but heat will. Store them as cool (and dry) as possible and they will last for many decades.

Re: Primer storage

If they are federal 215's regular or match you can store them at my place.
