Question Oath Ammo

I have a box of (20) 9mm Oath Ammo bullets that are going on (2) years old. I don't think I will ever need them, God willing. Are they nearing the age that they need to be shot, or can I just keep them loaded in one of the mags of my (3) 9mm firearms?
Also, has anyone ever used them to target shoot? If so, what were your results?

Two years old? That stuff is like new. Shoot it or keep it. It won't matter.

Depends how it is stored. In an airtight container with desiccant will outlast you.

Kept in the trunk of your car in a place that is really humid could corrode that ammo fast

I've never heard of Oath Ammo but if it works 100% reliably, 2 years old is not a problem as long as it was properly stored.

Ammo (if stored properly in a cool and dry place) should last almost indefinitely. My 12 gauge Pheasant hunting loads are from the 1950's and 1960's that was left to me by my Dad. He had so much of it, I highly doubt I'll ever actually buy a box for hunting birds! Never had a misfire or dud!!
