    With all of the discussion regarding the price of shells and components going up, I hhave a few questions regarding storage:

    What is the max temp on both extremes that shells can be stored at?

    Humidity concerns for both shells and powder?

    Is there a max length of time that any of these should be stored for?

    Any other concerns that I should address if I decide to get a storage unit to save money?

    I can't answer as to exact minimums and maximums, but I did recently shoot two cases, one case new, and one case reloads which had been in storage in my garage for 25 years. They were exposed to temps from 0F to probably 110F and whatever ambient humidity was - sometimes 100%. No problems. You could call a mfr and ask too.
