Dear sir,
Our supplier guarantees the primer 10 years subject to storage in original packaging at a temperature between +10°C and +30°C and at an humidity not higher than 80%.

Best regards

This is good to know so if in 2017 my 07 ammo don't go bang, it will be replaced under warranty!

Where do they say that it will be replaced under warranty? Also how would that work for ammo that they regulate to LEO/MIL only such as 198??

I have a decent stash of 198 and intend to make it grow. So being non LEO/MIL would they give me new 198 even though they restrict it to non civi's only?

Conventional ammo has been tested to last as long as 100+ years under ideal simulated laboratory conditions and corrosive primer ammo that's been hermetically sealed may last even 3x longer than that.

Why would any person in their right mind fall for this obvious scam?

Well I have always heard FNH will replace it and if their supplier guarantees it for 10 yrs. then naturally FNH also would! However I was thinking about my Super Secret SS 195 Zombie Killer Stash, but with the SS 198 I can see where one can have a problem unless LE etc...

FNH also states that their Lead-free ammo has an indefinite Shelf life if stored under proper conditions just like any other Ammo!

Getting down to basics according to Ammo manufacturers any Ammo over 10 yrs. is considered "OLD" and should not be used in life/death situations!

Lead Free Primers

Make ammo have a shelf life like friggin food instead of being shelf stable for a lifetime.

The O-Tards imposing the lead free projectile requirement made sense in some small way but the lead free primers military ammo producers are trying to incorporate into any ammo used by the federal government are just a money making scam as the amount of lead(or mecury for that matter) in primers is literally 1/100th of the lead content of projectiles.

Create a consumable, sabotage it's shelf life so more has to be bought by the government whether they use it or not and so that civilians can't hoard it if they decide on some end run gun ban.

Lead free primers are the trojan horse of gun control, the minute they force the industry to switch to them they can shut off the tap and disarm the whole nation with sabotaged ammo in 10 years.

In this age of Emperors via Executive Order I wouldn't count on a civilian even being able to buy ammo 10 years from now much less get it replaced under warranty.

Well the Army was talking about going Lead-Free in all ammo yrs. ago and they stated it will be rotated due to a 6 yr. shelf life and they have started using lead-free 5.56 with a 6 yr. useable shelf-life!

Every other administration has been smart enough to reject this crapola until now.

Lead free is bogus, the real motives behind it are bogus, lead free projos are fine if properly engineered but the primer thing is an enemy scam intended to cripple America for profit and control.

There's a reason our enemies still use slightly corrosive primers, they last longer and more reliable and cut costs.

Friends don't let friend buy lead free ammo..
