If they aren't brittle they will be fine.Was given a couple of bags of Winchester WAA12 Wads, plus some in the old white cardboard box. The ones that where in the bags are slightly discolored while the old ones in the box are not. Are the discolored ones safe to load or should I trash them?
I wouldn't bet on it. I had some 20 year old SP10 wads that never saw daylight. Loaded up some hunting loads for a tower shoot and they performed terribly. We found a few of the wads. They were completely compressed, all the fingers ripped off, and the bases were deformed.If they aren't brittle they will be fine.
