Looky What I Found...

Postby bagman45 » Fri Nov 18, 2016 7:37 pm

Howdy all, as I mentioned in a previous post, I'm getting back into reloading after a long layoff. Well, last night I ventured into the closet where all my reloading gear and supplies are kept to do an inventory of what I have on hand. Aside from the other surprises hidden away and forgotten was a box with some old cans of powder. Check out the price tag on the can in the pic for a trip back to the past...;)

I'd say it's been a while. :shock: Regardless, the powder can still be good if stored properly. I had some I found that were old but still smelled like new. They just got stuffed behind other things in that cabinet. Thru time, I shot it all up and it worked fine.

Yup, sure has!! LOL!! Also found a can of 2400, also unopened, a half can of bullseye about half full, a half can of Unique, a half can of AA#5 and some WW rifle powder, all smelled fine. Will likely load a few rounds for a revolver to check them out, but am optimistic ;). Also have a couple K small and large pistol primers. All of this stored in an interior, climate controlled closet so hoping it'll all still go bang!!! Oh, and I paid a whopping $14.95 for the Unique and 2400..... :lol:

Just having a stuck on price tag makes anything "old".

God forbid something isn't "coded" when you get to the check out!

LOL, true that!! Nothing worse than standing in line behind somebody who triggers the dreaded "price check"!!! ;-)
