Think I'm going to have to go powder shopping. I've heard that the prices changed a few years ago.....several times, is what I was told. I guess I'll find out.

Um....yeah, its been a while since you bought powder I guess. :D You're in for a very rude awakening.....that powder will cost you $25 and they'll give it to you in a plastic bottle.

That's the kind of powder used in antique firearms, right? :D

Yeah, multiply that price by 10 or 11 and you should be close. You better check that powder for ammonia or an acrid smell before using it. Just saying. :D

It's fine, I have a number of older containers that have been stored properly. H4895 for $3.00 is one, H4831 for $2.75 is another. There are others.

How many older metal cans do you have in your collection? I think it would be pretty cool to have a few sitting around the reloading room.

I'm finishing a big old can I bought prior to the Clinton election. I store it right, and check the color and smell before loading each time. I also have a couple of hundred thousand, I guess, 9mm casings. 12 5 gallon buckets anyway. Since I'm retired......oh yeah. Several 60 pound boxes of 115 and 125 gr plated bullets. Good grief.
