p*wdergun said: Wondering if anyone follows this practice ? Would it be a good idea to prep the brass complete with primer and store it till needed. I was thinking that by having a supply of brass prepped, primed, and ready for powder and bullet would be more efficient. Will the primers last indefinitely ( couple of years ) once in the brass without any ill effects. Storage would be cool, dry, and, dark.
g*udzy said: i did it a few times, but mostly because i ran out of bullets. I would recommand it.
Tr*gun said: Primer is very long lasting, no idea how long it will stand but let say two or three years. I have some fogotten unpack primer seating inside the garage, hot summer and wet winter for about three years, full of spider web and dust, I found out and put them into pistol rounds and they all work.

pr*sper said: Exactly what I do. All the brass in my reloading cupboard is prepped, primed, and good to go (or fully loaded ;))
C*cked&Locked said: I got about a thousand primers from my grandfathers basment that had been on his loading bench for at least 20 years. Add the 6-7 I had them before I used them and call it three decades. Not a problem with any of them. They where CIL and great to work with.
b*ney said: I'll prep mine quite often and have had it sit around for about a year or so.Its always reliable.After I prime it ,I'll put it in poly bags,then put the bags inside of coffee cans and put the plastic lid on.
sch*ck said: I prep my brass well in advance too. I have never had a problem. If your worried, warp your prepped stuff in plastic wrap.
pr*sper said: I don't see how storing primers in brass is any different than storing primers in their little cardboard packaging - it's not sealed. Stored properly, primers should keep longer than powder. And it that's stored properly, it should keep indefinitely
