50 Grain Propellant Pellets.

I have about a half of a box (50) of pellets left that are 4 years old. Is it best to replace them and get a new box or ok to use as long as they are dry and work well. Thanks, Del

I'm not sure how long the pellets last. Shoot them and see if they shoot any different than new pellets. You may want to just buy a new box to use just in case.

Smile Pellet Suggestion

I'd try them and if you're not zeroed anymore or your groups get erratic then buy a new box. If they shoot okay then you're good to go. I'm not sure how long pellets last.

Thanks for the advice guys. Zeroed in the muzzleloader today and everything was on target. The 4 year old pellets worked very well with no sign of any loss of power or ignition, Del.
