    a word of caution I bought a brick back couple years, had them stored in my basement - a bit more humid than normal but not wet by any means.
    loaded around 5 of the trays, the ones fired did fine but the other trays have corroded noticeably 2 of the tray last loaded are discolored/blackened.
    I would recommend storing in a zip bag w/a dessicant bag.
    they pressed in fine though with lee hand primer in variety of cases with federal being tightest squeeze.

    I'm sure your neck of the woods is just like the arm pit of Texas (Houston), humid 99% of the year. The wonderful climate here is why I store all my reloading stuff inside the house & not in the barn.

    Having just moved to Jacksonville, Fla. I, really worred about the humidity.So I'm just going to set a fan up to be blowing some air over my supplys. This should keep everything dry.

    I store my primers in a ammo box in my garage, No AC or controled climate.. No problems with poder or primers.

    I store the open brick of 1000 in the ammo box & powders in original contaners.. It's alway humid here in N/E FL ; )

    I live in SW Florida and if your primers/powder arent inside in the A/C they better be either in your humidity controlled safe,ammo cans or a tight bin with a large dessicant bag that gets changed every 3 months. Things rust and corrode here in no time,i wish i could get by with just using a fan.

    Definitely everything will be in the AC, just putting a little extra crculation to keep everything dry.

    I keep my reloading components in the basement and I run a dehumidifier year-round. Some of the primers are very old and they all go bang when used!
