    Old powder cans, tins & kegs

    Anyone know of a book or pamphlet listing old powder cans, dates, value, etc? I have about 25 of them sitting on shelves in my loading room. Most are from the 50's, 60's, 70's and are powder I bought for reloading. They vary from full with seals, to partial cans, to empty. Not looking to sell, just looking at them as a small collection or display. Some are fiber board, some metallic, from back when not everything came in plastic. DuPont, Hercules, Alcan, Hodgdon, WW, Bonanza, etc. Thanks. GJH
    Try being informed instead of just opinionated.
    Sometimes it is better to just smile and walk away.

    You can always tell a Handloader, by his unceasing quest for spent brass.
