I loaded 4 mags with 5219 on Friday and shot 3, now I have 1 left and have some more shooting to do on Tuesday night - should I unload the roll and store in the fridge or is it safe to keep in the mag until then?

 

How long can you safely keep film inside a mag? My house is around 72 degrees.

It's fine, just don't leave the mag in the sun.

I agree, just leave it in the mag, store it someplace cool inside the house.

Tape the seams and put your loop protectors on the mags (or bag them with stock bags) and you should be fine...
