    I bought 24 pounds of powder from her. 17 of it for pistol. I am good for awhile. Just figure that with what I already have there is enough for 40K rounds. My son might be loading with it after I am gone.

    I have a big can like that, snagged at a gunshow. It seems to have a lb or so and smells fine. One side has a long list of rounds, by Sharpy. 100 at a time and crossed off. Must add to couple thousand loaded.

    I picked up three cans of 700-X at an estate sale for $2.00 a can. All cans are still sealed.

    Went through a bunch of that in the 80's & 90's loading 12 gauge target loads. IIRC I used to get it in 5lb containers with a pull up spout.

    Actually, it is a very good powder, and I have heard that it meters like cornflakes. Does OK in my Dillon. The Lyman 55, not so much.

    700x is good stuff.
    I just make dippers from cartridge cases and wire and solder or epoxy to use aluminum cases.
    Dippers are almost fast as a crank powder measure and don't need to zero it in.
    Making a new dipper is quick and easy to change loads .Just need a scale to weigh the starting and final charge.
    Good luck!

    I have five powder measures and several scales & dribblers. However, I usually use Lyman Powder Scoops. I have both the old set and the newer set. They work fine. Easy to use and they are what I learned reloading on.

    I think pop tops were replaced in the early 70's, maybe late 60's. Keep in mind, that was roughly 50 years ago, and my memory certainly hasn't gotten better over time.

    I would think the pop tops made it to at least late 1977 based on the dates on the cans above. The old powder still works, currently using pop-top Herco in 16 gauge for skeet and sporting clays loads.

    For what reason? I have used some and it works as advertised.
