    Extreme summer heat and PC

    Hope this is taken as its meant . a helpful hint/ cautionary tale

    Want to call attention to my Southwest customers in particular
    Last year we have an extremely hot summer . I had 2 or 3 customers have issues with powder that was delivered in the extreme heat . one customer had his package in the mailbox for 2 days at 100 to 116 degrees. received a nice colored brick of powder.
    So heads up those in Socal, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas Might want to consider ordering you powder BEFORE July/August or after
    It does not matter If you order from me or someone else the heat is your concern
    I carry a Nuke50 because cleaning up the mess is Silly !!

    Good tip there! Get it now fellas!

    Big fan of Smoke's powder here. Red wine is my favorite, best coverage for me. I use a pinch of the Alum/wht in with the dark colors, creating a metalic looking finish.
    Take a kid to the range, you'll both be glad you did.

    Yup! Discovered this on my own about a year ago. Put a sealed Mason Jar of Smoke's Clear on the shelf over the workshop space heater. Took it down in the Spring and found the powder caked together into an almost solid mass. Chipped out a few pieces and went to work with mortar and pestle. Guess what...used the repulverized Clear to coat a run of 9mm TCs and it worked just dandy.
