Ok, I have a big reloading project ahead of me but for the next 10-14 days will not be able to do much. My question is how long do you wait between priming and completing the cartridge. I will have some spare time at odd times and would like to prime 800-1000 but have to wait to powder and set bullet. Thanks

I have loaded brass that had been primed over a year earlier that shot well, cases were kept in the house. How long does primed cases sit on shelves and warehouses and still go bang when loaded and shoot?

I was recently worried about this myself. I put the prepped cases in a plastic case then in a big ziplock bag. I was worried about humidity. Mine sat for two weeks before I could get to them.
