I bought some 38 super +P 130 grn ammo from a guy at a great price ($150). The catch is that all the ammo (1200 rounds) was loose in 2 plastic ammo cans and was manufactured in the mid 90’s. The ammo is from reputable manufacturers and was kept in a climate controlled area (in his safe). I’ve been told that it would be a good idea to spread this ammo out and surround it with desiccant bags for possibly weeks. I was told that old ammo, depending on what year it is will determine the type of powder used. I was also told that old powder has a tendency to “sweat nitro glycerin” making it very dangerous to use in your pistol. They said that if you let old ammo dry out that in some cases the desiccant will help the nitro return back to a powder form, possibly making it safer to use.
YOUR THOUGHTS would be appreciated
