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

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.
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.

Add a zero behind that price, and that is the average price now. :p

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.

Maybe someone in the Dallas area can tell me how long Thurman Randle & Co have been in business.
