    Default Primer life

    How long do primers last in the box stored inside, inside a cool dry spot.
    The reason I ask I have loaded rounds for my rifle and prime all my cases with needle nose pliers, careful not to ever touch the primer and today had my first ever round fail. Kinda bothers me what do you guys think?

    I'm REALLY new to reloading, but as far I know, properly stored primers have a indefinite shelf life.

    I've got Federals that are 20 years old and still fine. CCI's didn't hold up as well stored side by side with them.
