    700-x tin

    Not real exciting but picked this up and it still had at least a pound of powder for about 10 bucks.

    I have one, but it's only 8 oz net weight. Can't recall where I got it. Only 2.5 oz of powder left.

    700X is a very versatile powder, good in many pistol and reduced rifle cast loads. I've been using up a good quantity I got from my dad.

    I have that one and a couple of the 8oz cans. Ihave the start of a decent old powder can collection but have never been able to upload a picture or would have posted them here before.

    Neat old can. I'm still using the powder that came in mine.

    The lady I got it from has a keg, big metal can, of it that has about 8lbs left. Have not tried loading this yet but hear it meters poorly in the dillon powder measures.

    Most of what I've been shooting it in lately is .38-55, 7x57 and .45 ACP, but it seems to be a pretty good powder in applications where Red Dot would be good.

    I have one that my dad bought in the 70's when we were loading shotgun. Weighs just under 3 lbs. now, been using it for 9mm and 45 acp plinking loads, little dirty but still goes bang and hits what I am aiming at.

    Prior to 9/11, it was sold in 8lb. metal circular jugs. I gave 3 empty cans to a friend with a barn for display. My son was on a trap team and I went through a lot 700X in those years. Still do but not as much. It’s still my 12 ga. and 20 ga. target load powder and 45 acp for sub machine guns powder.

    The lady I got this from still has a partial Keg of it too. I have heard it does not meter well in a dillon and since I bought 24 pounds or other powder from her I really do not need it.

    It's good stuff in a lot of things, and powder isn't gonna get easier to find for a while. Figure out something to use it for and save your regular stuff.

    In my lee pro 100, under about 3.3 grains is where I may get spotty metering. It is very bulky. Data exists for almost any handgun cartridge. It’s my cowboy action powder for 44 special, 44-40 and 45 colt. It will send a 357 lead 158 grain lead out at 1100 FPS. It works well as a blank powder in any handgun case, just fill it up and use a couple of card wads over the case. It usually makes enough pressure so the primer won’t back out. It works well as a smokeless blank powder in shot shells as well.
