Default Shotgun Shells?

Is there a shelf life on shotgun shells? I've got a couple boxes of B&P 6 shot from two years ago, are they still good? They have been stored in a cool dry area.

Your sheels will be fine they should have a shelf life of yrs. as long as they are stored properly look for signs of rust on the brass and if they are reloads for the crimp to be coming loose

yeah seriously 2 years is nothing. i have stuff thats alot... i mean alot older than that and they still shoot. i've shot other stuff that was probably at least 20 years old before just as long as they aren't rusted or any noticable problems or defects.
