    Keep the powder for shtf.

    It would be less disrespectful to burn the flag than to put a thin blue line through the middle of it.

    I put them in a dutch oven with a brick on the lid and heated them up on a turkey fryer. Annealed them and ensured no live primers left over.

    I would just keep pulling bullets, dumping powder, and drop a hammer on the empty case to pop the primers. I know it's alot of doing, but then you CAN sell them for scrap brass, and honestly that is the best solution. I would NOT bury them, or throw them in the trash.

    God Bless, and One Love.

    Yes I can be long winded. Yes I follow rabbit trails. Yes I admit when I am wrong. Your mileage may vary.

    Keep your powder dry. Watch yer Top knot.

    If the powder looks good, no reason to scrap it. It'd be easy enough to prime your own 9mm brass, pull the bullet, dump the powder into your case, reseat the bullet and you have ammo. Do a box to test, if it goes well... do all of'em.
