Has anybody had a flood in their "hobby" area? If you had an issue and ammo and primers were under water for several days would they be all garbage now?  Could this possibly be covered by Homeowners policy or not a chance and not worth mentioning?

Primers are probably done.... ammo, well, how wet, how long? And then it's iffy.

Homeowners will cover it IF you have contents coverage.

If the flood was caused by a domestic water supply then you're probably covered. If it was caused by outside water coming in then you're probably not unless you have a flood policy that covers contents. Many people who live near the water have (required) flood policies but not all of them include contents.

Primers that are submerged with water will fire when they dry out. I'd only use them in plinking ammo after that when im sure they're are ok. Take a cross section of specimens and one at a time smash them with a hammer on concrete floor. If they all go boom ....your in business. The only way to truely kill Primers is to immerse them in oil.
