While they don't tend to "go bad", things can happen to them... Ammo is fairly cheap, if it's over a decade old, or you just aren't sure, error
on the side of caution, and have them disposed of. Also, I'd heed Mojom's advice on the gun itself as well...make sure it's clean. If you aren't
sure about it...have it professionally cleaned (at least the first time) and checked out. You can't play it too safe when firearms are involved.
My condolensces on the passing of your grandparents...
