    Ive heard that after some time, bullets go stale, or don't fire as efficiently, true or false?

    You have a long time before that happens my friend. I'm shooting stuff from the mid '70s and it's only lost 10-20fps compared to early 90's ammo.

    Keep it in a cool dry place and yours will outlive you.

    That surplus stuff for mosins hasn't seemed to lose any kick after bouncing around the Warsaw pact for what... 50 years?
