    I store mine in the original containers and stacked on shelves in my loading room. The room is climate controlled and seldom sees any natural light. The same with primers.

    I keep mine in old coolers. Maybe I will build some wooden boxes though. It will give an excuse to use the wood working tools.
    I was a dog on a short chain
    and now there’s no chain.

    An old college size refrigerator can make a good storage cabinent as the doors don't latch tightly and will open to release pressure. they also maintain temps pretty well being insulated. Desicant packs or a simple electric rod can be installed to help control humidity also. Had one set up for welding rods with a 10 watt light bulb burning in it, worked great and rods stayed dry for years.
