    Rifle powder????

    I have two 1# cans of Dupont smokeless rifle powder one orange and one green. . The cans are metal but there are no number references on the cans. They are quite old with some rust around the bottom. Other than the rust they are in really good shape. I was wondering if the color of the can indicated what it might be used for?

    Without a product number on them, I wouldn't even consider loading with it.
    It wasn't playing the blame game, finding fault, and complaining about every little thing that made America great.
    It was God, guns, and guts.


    OK folks. Enough of this idle chit-chat. This ain't your Grandma's sewing circle.

    If you're taking the photos with your phone, try reducing the resolution, I think there is a limit on file size you can upload.

    Smaller/ lower resolution photo may upload.

    Hopefully, anyway.
