new neos old ammo (first post, too)

Hi all,

After a long break, I am finally getting back into using firearms. My first purchase is a Beretta Neos. I picked up the Cabelas green model so that I would blend in with the trees and meadows better and the Marvin the Martian styling really makes me stand out. I have fired a couple of hundred rounds with it; the Winchester White 555 box fired flawlessly, the Federal 325 pack had three rounds that failed to fire. The failed rounds had good strike marks and fired on the second attempt. Stingers were perfect, too. When I let family know the difficulties I was having in finding ammo, my dad sent a few hundred rounds north to me with a friend. They are very old, as you can see by the picture.

How old is too old for rimfire ammo? Is there any value to keeping the old ammo in the original packaging? If I use it for practice, should I save the boxes and labels? Thanks for any advice.
