Hello everyone what is the best condition and location to store powder and if those conditions are met how long can one expect to be able to store it.

I store and have stored modern and black powder in a metal box lined with 1/2 inch plywood. Put wheels on it to make moving easy, other than that I keep it near a door to get it out of the house if there would ever be a fire. Do the same with all ammo and anything that goes "bang".

Keep it locked and in a clean dry area.

If you have the room here's a good setup.​

I have powders (modern and black) that are probably 30 years old and still work like new.
