Damaged Shotshells - Advice Please
I had quite a few boxes of shotshell stored in a closed off area of the basement.
We had a terrifically heavy rain that damaged the gutters, and water dampened the basement walls.
When I went in to get some shells for trap, I found all of the boxes badly molded, so I removed all of the shells, threw away the boxes, and put the shells into sealable plastic bags.
Most of the shells seem fine, but some have slightly rusted/corroded bases. Some are brass bases and some are steel.
I'd like to clean them up, and my thought is to spray then with WD-40, let then sit a bit, and then wipe them with a non-scratching kitchen pad. Does this sound OK?
Am I ok storing them in sealed plastic bags?
Any other suggestions are much appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
