My brother found a bunch of old 9mm ammo in a basement of a house he bought, at least 400 rounds. I shot them all off, had a few duds and every one that fired had a wicked hang-fire, which was kind of fun. No clue on the age of it, they were stored in coffee cans.

I fired stuff from WWII in the 90s without any problems.

U talking reloads or factory? Factory loads have the cases sealed both ends...primer and mouth..if u reload and seal the primer and the mouth, then they should store for along time...if not, then it would depend more on evironment that they are stored in...high and dry will last longer...longer still in a good sealed container..

The old addage still goes...keep your powder dry. DRY. The dryboxes you get if you buy in bulk work wonders. Grandma keeps trying to steal them from me tho...because, of course, they work. Just be wary of older ammo, as it can cause pitting if the weapon goes uncleaned.
