I am unable to make it out hunting this year. I want to know how long will the powder last in modern shotgun shells?

    I found a bucket(they werent even in the box) of shells in my basement. I didnt know what they were for so I went out and shot targets with them. Found out later on they were my dads from the mid 80's. In other words you should have no problem at all when go to shoot them next year or whenever, just keep them dry.

      I just shot the ones from the 80's last year to clear it up, that means they were over 20 years old =p

          Keep them dry and clean, they will last for years.
