Are shotgun shells that's been submerge okay to shoot? if so how long would it take for them to dry out? I whent hunting for ducks afew days back and had my shell conatiner lid open and about 50+ shells where sitting in 6" of water for about 30-mins. the shells where Winchester expert steel and Remington hi-velocity steel ( green hull). I cut open one of each to check them out see that the winchester has a better seal+wad design for the area between the powder and first wad but the steel shot has a few rust spots showing. The remigton hi-velocity steel was a joke. It was water in the shot area ( duh ) and the powder was wet and clumpy but the shot is nickel or some type of coating to protect it from rust. opinions, anybody ???.... Should I just write this off as a lost? (I currently have them in a box shot-end down) Not too much worried since duck season activity has dropped but was just curious.
