    powder can get old, if you pour some out on a piece of paper and it looks rusty (like it's starting to rust) it won't have even burn times. I got some from a friend that was I don't know how old and it look kind of rusty to me so I just poured it out on the drive way in a nice even line and lit it up. it did not burn consistently. I have used primers that have been 20 years old and they seem to work just fine.

    powder will last idefintely i suppose if kept dry, the primers may lose thier seal but i've got some ammo left from 1962 that's never failed yet.

    I reload my own shells for hunting and since I don't target shoot a lot, the smokeless powder and primers often remain on the shelf for a long period of time. What is the shelf life for powder and primers and what is the best way to store them?
