I have, and do use primers and powder that are over 40 years old. They work fine. IF they have been stored properly. When powder goes bad, it stats smelling funny, and you usually see an odd looking red dust in it.
As far as primers go, if you think they may have been moisture contaminated, leave them in the package they came in, and bury it in a covered container of uncooked rice for a couple days. That should pull any errant moisture out of them. Load up a few to test(25-50 rounds or so) If they all go bang, use the rest of them up just like normal.
