    I just finished up a tin of HS-5, the other day. Had it for 40 years. Use to use it with Hornady 115 JHP's in my Browning HP. Finally, got around to trying it with cast and it did admirably. Too bad it's discontinued.

    Sold a few of these empty powder cans in the past but the last few years no one is interested.
    Soon I will use up the last of a 4895 in a fiber can.

    Is there any market for the square Hercules cans?

    I don't know, but, I have two of 'em. One full, one empty. I put the empty one in my wife's China cabinet. Interesting result.

    I have a few of these old powder cans myself , there is a certain nostalgia with these old cans, I know that sounds silly but I can't part with them .
