    powder hopper

    A few years ago pyrodex was deemed safe to use in a powder hopper. Is my memory any good?

    I couldn't say for Pyrojunk but BP is safe in one. As Pyrojunk has about a 200 degree hotter ignition temp I can't imagine it wouldn't be safe. Surely by now the old wives tale about static electricity igniting powder has been satisfactorily debunked.

    Excellent sharps4590, I'm happy to hear I can meter my pyrojunk thru my rcbs powder hopper. I believe I will rename it my rcbs pyrojunk hopper.
