    This is one year's worth of bench spilled, mistake, and factory dud takedown powder.

    Last week I was given a ziplock freezer bag full of 9mm ammo that was either duds, missing primers, or had upside down primers. I pulled the bullets on all them to reuse the bullets and brass (if not berdan), and came up with about a third of a shot glass worth of random powders.

    I'm given a lot of ammo for pull down. I save the powder until I have at least 7 or 8 pounds. Put it in a heavy cardboard box AWAY FROM THE HOUSE and light the box. Looks really cool at night if the neighbors don't mind.

    I've heard of adding a dash of powder to a shot of whisky, but that would get you loaded.

    Me, I use a tin can, Bush's hot chili beans. :D

    I couldnt wait a whole year! I clean my bench off between calibers (sometimes more).
    I spread whatever powder i cant use out onto the raspberries my yard is full of.
