Is 50 year old ammunition still good?

Generally, yes. If factory centerfire cartridges are stored in a dry, cool place with low humidity, preferably in an airtight container, they can have an amazingly long shelf life.

Can bullets get too old?

Bullets are just part of an entire cartridge, they are just the projectile: They don’t go bad, and can be used no matter how old they are.
