    Pfft 1gr spread in min/max isn't that tight :) My load for 32acp has a min of 2.0gr and a max of 2.2gr.

    Not that I recommend doing it unless you know what to look for....but book maximums generally aren't the real "maximum" for loads. Since it really depends on the gun. Books publish whats safe for all guns (unless stated otherwise) and to keep new people from blowing things up.

    Will do. I am going to use h4350 instead since I picked up some powder way back and found it unopened in my office.

    Well, with the impending hurricane, looks like I'll have some free time for the next few days. Got a vintage military/highpower match coming up at the club in October so it looks like I may make some ammo. Haven't reloaded in over a year but I want to get back in the hobby. Time to make some 8mm and 30-06!

    ^ Nice!

    I see you have a dehumidifier in the room. Are you in the basement as mine is? I run a dehumidifier that fills up rather quickly. (Yes, I need to plumb the drain...)

    As an additional precaution, I store my powder and primers in 5 gallon buckets with sealed lids. In each bucket I have desiccant packs to absorb/control the moisture. I don't know how necessary this is, but I figure it can't hurt anything.

    The reality is, I don't use the powder and primers as fast as I should! ;)

    It’s actually a stand alone AC unit that dehumidifies . And this room is an addition onto the garage of my one story house . Outside is all rough cut cypress and covered outdoor kitchen / entertaining area . Notice the window behind the tv . I filled it with 2” rigid insulation board for now .
    No basements in Louisiana unless you need a pool under your house which will later become a sinkhole


    Good idea on your storage method !

    Wow, this thread has gone dark of late.

    I finally cleaned up the garage and loaded up 550 115 grain JHP's for my trip up to visit the family. Going to load up some 357. 30-06, and 22-250 tomorrow. Brothers and I get together every few months and spend some time together on the range. I am the only one that reloads, so I keep us stocked up. Not a bad way to spend some time in the garage!

    Sounds like a god time. I cleaned off my reloading bench last night. Some how it becomes a shelf for everything and everyone. I loaded up some 30-06 myself.
