Simple Survival Tips - Keeping Your Powder Dry

In an effort to save money, recycling is a great way to save a few bucks. You can recycle a very simple item that will help you keep your powder dry. One of the things that affect your ammunition you may have stored is moisture. It’s also pretty easy to combat its effects. Simply save those desiccant packs of silica gel and add them to your ammo storage.

A number of products come with those small packs of silica gel. If you save them instead of throwing them away, they can be used to help keep your ammo supplies from suffering the damaging effects of moisture. They work especially well if you buy the bulk packs of 22lr cartridges. Just throw a couple of the desiccant packs in the box of cartridges once they’ve been opened and you’re good to go or throw a number of them in your ammo box.

The packages are small enough that many times they can be added to an individual box of cartridges to help combat the effects of excess humidity, which we have plenty of here in Central Texas. For practice purposes and to save a little money, the bonus packs of 22lr cartridges are a regular purchase and the little silica gel packs work well to fend off the effects of excess humidity and moisture once they are opened.
