Greetings from Minnesooota Went to the range on Wed. 6-17 for my birthday and got a free lane to usesurprised! Went mainly to try 35 yr. old powder and primers.Thanks to comments to give them a try.Only loaded 30 rounds.Shooting went good without any issues.Poor target results because of lack of practice/bad eyes/bad hands. Have confidence to reload more for the .41mag.Also shot my Beretta in .380 acp and Ruger Mk 4 22/45 with a red dot.All in all a good at the range.Good buy for now from Minnesooota.God bless America,she needs it these daysproud-to-be-an-american

Beware of what you ask for, you might just get it.

occasionas long as the powder doesn't smell rotten and the primers were well kept, should be good!  Glad it was.

Technically, the glass is always full; half liquid, half air....

I agree with rwsem, if powders and primers are kept in a dry area for extended length of time, 10-20+ years, there shouldn't be any issues.
