Good question and I have been worrying about just this topic. I store mine in the original containers in an ammo can - in the house, and I constantly worry about what would happen if the house cought on fire. I guess I need to take it to the shed out back and keep the shed locked.

if the house catches fire.by the time it takes to ignite thru the ammo cans the house is already lost.
Who gives a hoot about the house? Insurance will take care of it---WHAT ABOUT THE FIREMEN THERE PUTTING IT OUT?
The original cans if Im not mistaken are designed not to act as shrapnel but unravel. Placing it in the ammo boxes ---you now have basically a grenade. Greybear and I leave them in the original containers and inside the cardboard boxes. I think he then uses beeswax possibly to waterproof the box ... Maybe he will chime in. I keep thinking about using the government approved storage box sold by Cabelas for $300 It holds 50 pounds with two locks on the top. If it explodes it would simply shoot the top off IMHO

I save the absorbtion packets that come with shoes and other products, place them in a large food saver bag with the powder canister and seal the bag with my food saver vacume saver. Have never had a problem. I also do my reloading powder the same way.
