Re: Powder/Primer shelf life????
I have primers that are about 20 years old that are in my regular stores for use.
As to the price of reloading supplies, inflation since 1997, when I retired, is at 44%. That is, it takes $144 today to get the same buying power as $100 in 1997. Have your wages/income gone up 44% since then? My retirement certainly hasn't! Supposedly insignificant inflation in the range of 1% to 4% when compounded over 15 years becomes significant.
Reloading supplies and anything gun related seems to have gone up more than 44% (??).
