you now i was thinking but i am not sure if i want to or not if i vacuum seal some ammo how reliable will the ammo be after let say 5 years ???
any body has $0.02 worth of answers to give me
I doubt seriously that these food sealers are that powerful. If you pulled the air out, wouldn't it suck the bullet in?In all seriousness, I always wondered, on shells that the case is not all the way filled with powder, once you apply the suction, would the air that is inside the case, force the bullet out making a longer OAL? A good crimp I figure would cover it, but not all ammo uses a crimp...
No worries there. A .308 diameter bullet has a cross-sectional area of only 0.07 square inches. With 15psi inside the case and a perfect vacuum outside that is only 1.1 pounds of force trying to push the bullet out. A 45 caliber shell would have less than 2-1/2 pounds of force. If the case neck tension won't hold that then there are much bigger problems with the ammo.once you apply the suction, would the air that is inside the case, force the bullet out making a longer OAL?
