Here's a valuable and expensive lesson I learned..... Murphy's law always wins!
My mothers house is closer to my hunting areas than where I live so I keep a moderate supply of ammo there in a bedroom closet for easy access; I had them in a rubermaid plastic tote with the lid sealed with packing tape and desiccant packs inside .......
"That's good enough, and better than most peoples ammo storage." is what I thought as I left her house that day.
Some time later my mother put a box of dishes on top of the rubber tote the ammo was stored in; then placed a spare 1 gallon jug of Tide laundry detergent on the shelf above it..... The jug of detergent got a pin hole in the bottom some how and slowly leaked out, dripping down onto the rubber tote and seeped through the crack in the lid and what you see above is the aftermath.
Lost over 2,000rnds of .22 (when you absolutely couldn't find it) along with various boxes of shotgun shells, .270win, .257wby, .300wby
I don't know exactly whats in laundry detergent but it reacts BIG TIME with brass and the corrosion was MASSIVE, the bricks of .22 were fused together like a rice crispy treat and all the other ammo looked like it had been given a saltwater bath and left outside for years.
After that I went out and bought a load of brand new .50cal & .30cal metal ammo cans - Metal with rubber seal and locking lid, once again putting desiccant packs inside them...... And zero issues with ammo storage ever since, I actually think the ammo could survive being totally submerged in flood water in those ammo cans.
