Reloads ? Key to ammo storage is cool & dry.

My reloads are kept in 100 round MTM boxes with all applicable load data. been doing it that way since mid 70s, never a problem to date.

Metal ammo cans are good too if you ensure the lids rubber seal is in good condition. I would remove all previous content markings from the can and re-mark it with current contents.

Factory ammo is kept in original packaging for LOT Identity. If there is a recall or you need to report bad ammo you will need to know what LOT is affected.
