Black Powder Storage ; What is the answer?

I bought a couple guns, a slew of bullets, and several lbs. of various powders to stash away for my son when the S.H.T.F .I intended to vacuum seal everything to enhance longevity .
Then I read and heard that the powder will not last in storage , that it breaks down and gets weaker.
So, is there any definitive word on how long properly stored powder CAN last ?

BH 209 Ignition Failure

I have had a series of hang fires with BH209 and CCI209M primers in my Long Range Hunter (50Cal). It only seems to happen when it is cold outside. When I work up my loads in September it fires everytime. When it gets below 40 degree outside I get hangfires. I had three in a row this muzzleloader season already. Any suggestions.

Best primer for MK85 with Pyrodex Select powder

I have an old MK85 from the early 90s and have always used 100 gr of Pyrodex Select and some RWS-1075 primers that I think are German made. It shoots great and I have never had a misfire. I haven't been able to find the same ones. What are people using now. I am happy with how it works and don't want to change out the nipple or anything.

I just purchased and received the new Ultra-Lite M/L. I have spent a ton of time and money on other guns trying to develop the right powder/bullet combination. Could someone please recommend how much powder/pellets they are using for the Ultra-Lite and what type of bullets? Thank you so much. Pierce
