    80's Herculean Flashback. IMR, Hodgdon an WW

    Good evening,
    I believe all the Hercules, WW and Hodgdon are from '79-83. I know the IMR 3031 is older, guessing early 70's?

    I'm still using Hercules powders in canisters like those, and DuPont IMR-series powders, too!

    Those cans sure bring back some memories! I was just beginning reloading when most of those cans were current productions. I do believe you're correct about the Dupont 3031.
