      Recently I have been using ammo that my dad had purchased well over 20 years ago. I have been using 12 gauge and .22 and I have not had a single miss fire occur. This ammo has just been moved around and put in all sorts of different places. It is extremely hard to tell if ammo has gone bad. but moisture is the #1 enemy, if kept dry it can last almost indefinitely.

        Now just remember if you do decide to shoot old ammo if you pull the trigger DO NOT eject the round right away and stay clear of the breach. Keep the gun pointed down range for at least 30 seconds. Then carefully extract the round and be safe about it.

          I've shot ammo over 5 years old with minor difficulty. Fresh ammo is better, so count me in with the rotators. It's a good excuse to get out and shoot and keep your skills up.
