Needed to restock inventory of 75 gr. V-Max rounds. Decided to see what older powders I still had on hand that would fill the bill. Need to use up some of the old stuff. This is two cans of what I found. First can is priced at $1.95, the second took a price jump to $1.98

It all depends on it's exposure to heat, light and humidity. This powder was purchased new in Idaho in the 60's and lived only in Idaho and Montana, always in the house where people lived. That way temp and humidity extremes were avoided. H4831 is not the best with light bullets but it needs to be used and it is still very good, so I'm using it up.

The empty cans are probably worth more then the original price paid. I would use it as well.
