    I have new-when-stored STS hulls that at least 10 years old. They are in cardboard barrels and never see the light of day until I'm drawing some for loading. I've fired plastic and paper hulls that I loaded for a brother and they sat around in shell boxes for somewhere around 25/30 years without issues. Sounds like you're good to go with your ideas......breakemall
