A: Most, if not all quality ammunition should last many decades without any deterioration or loss of performance compared to being fired immediately after the manufacturing process.
With the general rule of thumb being a "cool & dry" area as the ideal location for storage, regular shooters will usually store their ammo stash in ammo cans with either 1 or many desiccant packs like those you may find with a new pair of shoes. Ideally, your storage location will be out of direct sunlight, relatively cool without significant change in temperature. Lower humidity is also key.
There is no technical expiration date for ammo. Aside from some surplus ammo in 7.62x54r which we will mention the date, all of the ammunition we sell has been recently manufactured.

A: There are a number of differences between these cartridges, including case length and pressures. While it may be physically possible to load shorter 9x17 or 9x18 into the popular 9x19mm Luger chamber, this would likely cause malfunctions and does not have any benefits over another sized cartridge. Others will likely be loaded to a different pressure and become dangerous if attempting to fire in the incorrect gun. To verify the ammo your gun needs, the manual should list the caliber, or check the side of the barrel, slide, or frame for the caliber marking. This 9mm ammunition is designed to be fired in modern 9x19mm (9mm) firearms.

A: Federal has not formally classified this as a +P round. While some firearm manufacturers advise against the use of +P ammo in their guns, this would be a good choice for your 9mm pistol or carbine. Your user manual will be able to provide you with more information on what ammo works best for your firearm and if +P is safe to fire. Most all modern firearms will safely fire +P ammunition in smaller quantities.
