Speaking about putting some away....


As I am doing my reloading project, and filling cans with ammo for the year's shooting, each container is getting a few of these put in it:

Silica Gel Desiccants

I've seen the results of damp storage over time, and written about it here on the blog.  I expect to use this ammunition before corrosion becomes an issue, but if I don't get to it in the near future I'll be damned if I open that can in a few years just to find nastiness.

In a pinch you can use 100% silica cat litter and old nylons and. custom size your desiccant packs

FWIW, all my ammo is packed in GI Ammo cans with a couple of packets of Silica Gel Desiccant, and a couple pieces cut from a VCI Volatile Corrosion Inhibitor) Bag.
