Thanks. I thought I had recalled that. I bought the previous can at an old gun store, and it had dust on it when I got it. No telling how old it was. The new can came in the plastic container, so there is probably some serious age & obviously lot differences between the two. What is your thought on buying 8 lb bottles? For this round, it is "the" powder. I'm going to experiment with different bullets of the same weight for different purposes and see how it performs. If they all perform well (I'm sure the charge will need to vary a bit) then I'm thinking I'll go that route. 1 lb of powder yields approx. 190 rounds (191.78 to be exact) the latter to allow for spills etc. I figure at that rate, It should last about 2-3 years for that gun. Is that too long to store powder?
