    Been there, done that. There is an easy way to clean up though. I have one of those miniature Shop Vac "Hang Up's". Put a fresh bag in it, vacuum up the wayward shot, then empty the bag.

    My 366 has been in storage for years now as I have pretty much quit shooting shotgun. My "brain fart" moment has been forgetting to close the powder drain on my Chargemaster when changing to a new powder. At least the powder just makes a large pile next to the measure and I can scoop it up with a sheet of paper.
