    The Graf's truck made a pickup from us yesterday and there wasn't much room for our 4 bullet pallets, so the driver had to break up a pallet of primers to make way. Here's a photo -

    ..and the rest of the load was -

    Powder from Hodgdon's!

    I told the driver that if he got stopped on the way back by the Highway Patrol and if they asked if he was carrying drugs, he should say - 'No, way better! Gunpowder!!"

    Is having powder and primers in the same load kosher?

    apparently it is, and if you have ever noticed (if you've had primers or powder shpd to you) that the only difference is the red 'hazmat' tag. the material is'nt packaged any more secure than other items.

    Ohh, never mind. I misread "can" as "can't". Minor detail.

    That's an interesting question, so I called my rabbi. He said that primers, powder, and bullets in the same truckload is kosher as can be, so long as the driver doesn't stop and eat a pork tenderloin on the trip :)

    All that lead in the back of the truck. One good bump and that cab will be lifting up like a dragster.

    It wouldn't exactly be a nightmare for an Old Loader either. LOL

    True, but most "oldies" have a nice stash that lets them sleep just fine in this time of crisis. :D

    This is true, I learned from the Klinton disaster back in the '90s.
