    ziplock bags inside Tupperware inside Tupperware. Be redundant multi layers of protection from atmosphere and consistent temp if possible changes in temps more than 20 degree can cause condensation and vacuum/pressure making a leak more possible.

    Try a oxygen absorber in a seal a meal bag. Long term storage, loose rounds can make smal layer able bricks.

    Steel ammo cans!
    I heat seal in plastic bags and pack in ammo tins then stack the tins in a strong box outside temp can fluctuate 20c
    but inside maybe 2c
    Ammo bought in 1984 (.22LR) still good as new!

    I went with surplus steel ammo cans. First, they were cleaned up, then I spray painted over the military markings, then attached a computer-generated label indicating what type of ammo, cover that in clear tape, and applied red grease around the hinge. Rinsed and repeated until all ammo types were covered. It has worked thus far. :)
