Here is a few of the "older ones" and some added "stuff"...
Just playing with the Camera...
I screwed up the title ... Should have said "Never have more than one powder on the Bench"
Those are just a few of the Powders I have mostly the older stuff... still a cabinet full of newer stuff...
Some of those powders and primers date from the late 50's and early 60's...
He can't be too old..... He's still got the calender. LOL
The calender was from my son ... how could you not hang a gift from your son!
Never a distraction from my reloading... not even that!
I got to restock, this is just mostly some old stuff, didn't even remember some of it!
Wish I could buy tomorrow what I've shot "yesterday"!!
Rondog ... I have good cabinets to keep everything in, but it is humid here.
Like Snuffy said in a recent post, humidity is no problem to primers and all my powder is in sealed cans or bottles, so no problems for me. Just keep the "tools oiled" and carry on!
Any of you other guys have the first can(empty or full) of powder you bought??
Wish I did. It was a metal one pound can of W-231. I still have one metal three pound can left.
My father-n-law is 89, mostly bedridden, and constantly watches the Spanish cable channel when not sleeping or eating. He can't understand a word but his occasional smile reveals his appreciation for busty women. Getting old causes a loss of ability but not interest.
When I reload I try to keep my mind on what I'm doing so have no stimulating distractions. If I hang a picture it would be of my father-in-law. That is why I don't have pictures on the wall of my loading bench. Ed.
All the best boys/gals.
I hacked your personal Photobucket account, the one called "Family"
I am glad we've had some fun with this ...
Yes, I do! Well, maybe not the very first, but darn close to it. I am a confessed pack rat.
It's an empty 1 lb can of DuPont IMR-4064 bought at the old Potomac Arms store in Alexandria, VA. That's the same company that used to import all sorts of military rilfes and sell them for practically nothing. You don't want to know what I paid for the powder (the price sticker is still on it), but I'll tell you anyway - $3.50, and that wasn't anywhere near the lowest price for a lb of powder back then (mid to late '60's).
JimKirk - it's good to see that all of your electrical work is up to code!
Is that some pipe cutters hanging on the wiring or just umbrellas?
I'm sure there's some older ones stuck in some forgotten corner.
Ed, that's not your f-i-l, that's my former wife.
