In poor form I've mostly been using the ammo I bought last since the old stuff took some digging to get to, however during the course of examining it all I realized it was an interesting case study (no pun intended) on my storage technique and how the factory packaging fared over time.


As an aside I found a baggie of 22lr+dry dirt and bark chips where I'd dropped a box and had to hastily scoop up the rounds along with everything else that came with them. It had fallen to the back of the bar-fridge behind another box and I'd forgotten all about it. Amazingly they were in better condition than the manky box.

Is the ammo fridge in the basement? I run a dehumidifier in ours just to help keep moisture levels down. It sounds like the bark chips may have helped keep things dry. Amazon has silicon gel desiccants for pretty cheap and I've seen that recommended for storing moisture prone items too
