Thread: Powder Life expectancy, expiration

  1. #11
    I was at the gun range awhile back and a guy came in that wanted to give away some powder, primers, casings and reloading books. I was the only "reloader" there; I gladly took the stuff off his hands. The powder was Bullseye. It was in a tin can with a lid that you popped off with a spoon-end or table knife, just like the old Nestle' Quick cans. I loaded up 1 magazine full of ammo (5gr behind 230gr LRN's) and shot'em at the range with zero problems. I went on to use up the entire can, which was almost full. BTW: the primers were Winchester Large Pistol Primers. All 880 of them went bang also.
    I know a man by the name of Mel;
    he can't see but he sure do smell.

    when powder degrades it chemically changes. You can see and smell these changes useally.
