    Gas checks in metsl cans & cloth bags

    In my stash of old reloading gear I have 4 metal tins of Hornady gas checks. Two are labeled 30 caliber and two are 44 caliber. I also have 2 string tied cloth bags with a mailing label that was shipped from Hornady that says " 100 gas checks".

    Anyone else seen these? Came from late 50's early 60's according to older gentlemen that I got from. Said he would order 100 pound cardboard drums of surplus 4831 from Hogdon and they would ship by rail and he would pick up at local depot.

    What a different world In the 50's.

    Tried a couple of times from my phone, but no success. Everything worked like you said, but the upload failed. I'll keep trying because I have a lot of old boxes, presses, powder cans, and on and on that I would like to post.
    Thanks for your help.
