Empty Powder Container

Post by jldorta »

Any reloader in the Palm Beach area who wants to sell an empty powder container???

I have it in bulk so I want it in small quantities on my bench.

Thank you

Have no idea what size powder container you are looking for, but I have a few empty 8 pound jugs that are surplus to my needs.
I'm in central Brevard, on Merritt Island.
I've not bought powder in 1 pound jars in many, many years.
If all else fails, a plastic peanut butter jar is fine for holding a small amount of powder on the reloading bench.

I was thinking of using this jar https://s7d6.scene7.com/is/image/bjs/150568

Is this safe just for small amount on the reloading bench?

quart sized plastic bottles from the dollar store, they have a flip up drinking lid ( flap ) so makes pouring into something else easier, can even write on the bottle with a sharpie, and they are only a buck :mrgreen:

Just do not leave it in direct sunlight for periods of time.
Ultraviolet light will cause powder to decompose.

How about repurposing old pill bottles? I have a large (500 ct.) bottle of generic, Costco Tylenol which is HDPE plastic & should keep out UV which looks to be about the right size for the bench. Looks to be about 1/2 the size of a 1 lb powder bottle.

Another idea might be to buy 1 lb of powder you already have & top off one of your 8 lb jugs. Be sure to relabel it well to avoid accidents
