I received this can of powder from a friend who got it in a box at an auction. The top and bottom are tin and the rest is cardboard and paper. The lid is just pressed into a hole in the top. I haven't opened it to smell of it yet but the can is in great shape.
Funny!!!! I've got a pound of Hodgdon's rifle powder H450 in a red with white lettering that looks the same.
Price was $2.50 !!!
Don't think it's ever been opened-----cardboard is still pretty stiff and no rust on the outside.
I "might" try it out,if I can find any loading data for 223 or 308
