I never had this problem in California, but now that I live in Florida my garage get over 100 degrees.
The afternoon sun hits my garage door for hours. I know that I need to insulate my door.
I keep most of my ammo in a locked cabinet . Of course I will not shoot it when it’s that high temperature.
Am I ruining my ammo?

Yes. I lived in Orlando for 10 years and stored all ammo and reloading components in sealed cans in a climate controlled room. My 25 year old cases of Federal GMMK Will still shoot 1/2 MOA or less. A friend kept his ammo in sealed cans in his garage and the heat degraded the powder creating higher pressures, very poor accuracy and some split cases.
