    H110

    This was in a box of assorted reloading stuff I picked up. Couple cans of newer powder, some dies, maybe 50 lbs assorted lead or alloy.
    I'm guessing 50's -60's ?
    Half full, not even thinking of using it (open can, old). Just a cool can to put on the shelf.

    If you're gonna be stupid, don't pull up short. Saddle up and ride it all the way in.

    Smell it - test it

    I got several pounds of 2400 out of a cardboard barrel that worked great

    It looks like it has a price tag on it. How much is on it?

    $8.05 for the pound!

    I have a 4 lb jug of 296, just not worth taking any chances, haha

    Nope late 70's. My brother and I started to use H-110 when Winchester stopped making W630. It is great in the .357. The first cans we bought where rectangle shape then they came in those round cans. My brother and I burned up a lot of H-110 back in those days.

    If it looks and smells OK, I'd use it.
    Especially in reduced, target loads.

    That was the second generation can and after the 60s. Hodgdon started out packaging surplus M1 Carbine powder in the late 50s. It came in a metal can covered with an orange paper wrapper at as I recall $1.60 per pound can. 4831 was marketed the same way in the same style cans at $1.00 per pound. If you were frugal, they went in back and scooped 4831 out of a 40 pound can and sold it at $.80 per pound in a doubled paper bag.
    After they found out the money in the surplus powder market, they marketed the can pictured above. I started loading in 1958, went into the Army in 1966 and those cans were just hitting the shelves./beagle

    Just going to start loading 300 BLK with H110, the bottle I pulled out looks the same as yours but is rectangular, somewhat remember buying it off a customer when I saw reloading stuff in the garage while I worked at his house about 20 yrs ago, no idea how long he had it, still sealed.

    Loading manuals used to carry a warning not to reduce H110 published loads by more than 3%. I don't know if that's still true.

    It's still a good idea. I've adjusted it as a function of case volume before to work closer to 5 percent with .50 Beowulf for a starting load, since Anderson Arms only provided the max for some H110 loads. That's around 42 grains of powder though. For everything else, I start with the suggested data.
