old school full pound
Trade for 9mm brass
That's wwII surplus. Is it still any good?
Looks fine smells fine
I’m sure it would be fine I just don’t have a use for it
That’s why I was just hoping for maybe 500 or so 9mm brass
Good luck. Chances are it's still good, if it was stored properly. Can looks immaculate though. The can has got to be worth something. It's actually a cool piece of history. It is collectible, I'm sure..
That can is from the '60s to '70s.
Here's what they looked like in the '50s
I use old powder like that all the time.
I just finished up a batch of 231 that was opened in 1963. I picked up the 2/3rds full commercial 50 pound can back in 1977. I've used it for my .45ACP bullseye softball load since then. It shoots the same today as back when I first worked up the load. Storage is the key.
If it smells good (not acrid) and is not showing red dusting and if it freely flows (not clumpy) it will be fine.
I use very old H4831 a lot. It works great with no issues that I've ever run into. If that powder was stored right, it'll go bang every time. Fantastic powder. Mine is old WWII era powder that I bought for $5/lbs.
I'd like to add I bought mine for a steal of a price. The guy who sold it to me didn't know what he had. Each pound is worth far more than just $5/ea.
If you were closer I would trade ya.
