Noticed some copper plated ammo I have around is turning a dark almost black color, they seem to shoot fine. Maybe 40% of a box of 50 has changed color, they rest have normal color.

I ask because I have had problems even finding .22's lately and was thinking of stocking up on this particular ammo (federal gameshok 40gr copper plated solid) and storing it for a few years.
Any reason to avoid it?
It looks like surface oxidation of the copper, primer and powder seem unaffected. I have thousands of other types of rounds showing no sign of corrosion stored in the same closet.
Anyone with similar experience?

It's just turning BLACK in preparation for when it becomes illegal and therefor EVIL! :wink:


I would have no problem shooting it as long as it was not crusted with dirt or anything and the brass was fine.
