PostSubject: Properly Storing Caps   Sat Aug 16, 2008 1:20 pm

The proper cap storage is very important for safety and getting constant performance from the caps so, storage is very important


1. The caps should remain in their original Marushin or MGC boxes as these where designed to prevent damage to the caps.

2. Since the phosphorus filler is very hydroscopic they should be stored in a dry cabinet well away from moisture.

3. If children are present, the caps should be stored in a strong and preferably locked container well out of reach.

4. Using dessicant packages to control the buildup of moisture in the storage cabinet is highly recomended.

5. The chosen container should also be made as shock proof as possible so if the container is dropped the caps will not ignite easily.

6. Also, the container should be static electricity free.

These are very helpful advice. I try to follow them as I have some trouble with "dumb rounds", MGC and Marushin 7 mm caps that just fail to ignite.

Greetings
