I have finally stocked up on primers and have started to put more powder away. I am worried the primers may loose their power if they get any type of humidity.

How do you store yours?

i just keep in in the package they come in. Have some remington rifle primers that seriously are almost as old as I am LOL. Keep them in a closet where its cool and dark, that may help in the long run.

I bought 5000 Remington "97" primers (209 size) in the early 80s. I put them on a shelf in an uninsulated garage. They're still there and they still work.

My primers are stored in their containers inside Army ammo cans.

I haven't reloaded for 17 years. But, I'll be starting to again. My son is a LEO and wants to learn. He'll have all his own componants. I built a cabinet that keeps my primers, powder, die sets and loading accessories seperate but at hand in their original containers. I purchased a small dresser at a garage sale and painted it and catagorized the drawers for my empty cases and loaded bullets, books and larger accessories.  I beefed its stability and it's also my loading table. I've recently moved to a new home and am reorganizing my sporting room. I'm an avid flintlocker ( which is why I haven't reloaded in a long time) and reenactor.

Well, in a different way you're still reloading. ;)
