All of the above suggestions are valid and worth thinking about. I had a can of bullseye that had to be 30 -35 years old, The old round metal can type. It was given to me in the 60's by a friend. I used a little now and then, but found other powders I liked better so it just sat on my shelf for years. Last year I was going to dump it because of the age, I poped the can open and it smelled ok. I finally used it up for some skeet loads and it worked just fine..I saw an ad for Unique(I think), where the factory has kept it in a container of water for almost a 100 years and when tested it still worked fine.
