Hey guys,
A friend and I are going in on a pretty big keg of powder. What would be the best way to split this up? Old 8lb kegs if I can find them? Even if they are different powder, just label them right?

Just trying to work out some ideas.

You want air tight and light proof.

But not so strong they would blow up if your house burns down.

Just off the top of my head?

I'd look at the paint store for 1 gallon empty paint cans w/lids.

Thats a great idea. To top that off they sell plastic ones at our local store for like 98 cents or something.

I would use an old laundry detergent bottle. It comes with a pour spout.

Used bleach bottles.

CLEAN/DRY detergent and bleach bottles please. Use a sharpie to label the can/bottle with date and what is inside it. Find the detergent bottles at the laundromat in the trash can by the washer.:D

Oil bottles are used also & can be cleaned with a little gasoline.

For years and years the "Surplus Powder Dealers" would repackage in paint thinner cans. Aside from the hassle of prying out a gallon can lid then having to pound it in with a mallet, the paint cans are certainly a good option.

Of course one could also go to the local gun club and see if any other reloaders have an empty 8# jug or two they haven't thrown away yet. I've got two I'd gladly give to anyone local in the same circumstance.

I'd avoid any container that previously held any liquid of any kind. Even cleaning with "gasoline" isn't going to assure the old product is gone and may well introduce a new problem. I'd rather use an empty "Scoopable Cat Litter" jug. Just blow the residual dust out with a compressed air hose.
