I'm wonderng how long it is safe to keep your carry ammunition. I know we've had a variant of this discussion before: http://forum.kentuckianafirearms.com/showthread.php?t=1988 (and thank you 93civic_sedan for kicking that off!) but I'd like to revisit it again. I know chambering and re-chambering ammunition isn't good because it can cause the actual bullet to shorten, thereby possibly causing a dangerous amount of pressure. I'm not concerned so much about my revolver ammunition because I'm not trying to force it into a magazine or a chamber, and I don't have carry ammunition for my G26 yet, so mostly I'm asking about how safe it is for my LCP, the .380. I've only had this ammunition for 6-9 months, and in the past few months it has just been sitting there because I haven't been shooting. I have heard it is good practice to rotate it... choose different rounds from the box to carry every so often, and then once you've been through them all shoot them and get a new box. I can do that because I think I might want to choose a different round now, but how long is typical for keeping this stuff around?
