    I've kept standard black powder and pyrodex for years with no problems, but I'm not sure about pyrodex pellets. Does the binding compound used deteiorate over a period of time, or are these just as stable as the standard powders?

    I've had a box for a couple of years now and I'm figuring on picking up the ol smokepole again this season. :D

    With the price they ask for them, that shelf life had better be a loooong time!
