Storing ammo in hot garage

2373 Views 35 Replies 24 Participants Last post by  dickjames214
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?

How about an experiment? 6 boxes of ammo stored in a garage, sealed to avoid moisture. Every year take 6 rounds, 1 sighter and 5 for group. anybody young enough to do this for 20 years? Good way to see what the temperature swings do to the rounds over time.
