    Bulk black Powder

    Anyone got any ideas how to store bulk black powder? Box w plastic liner? Coffee cans metal or plastic? Got rid of all my metal cans a few years ago.

    I put my bulk in 1 pound GOEX cans that I have been given over the years.

    Before I break down a keg, I store the 25 pound bag in the Large Military Ammo Cans. The one larger than the 60MM mortar cans.

    I have some old USN powder sample cans. These were rubber gasket sealed cans that are made of aluminum. They do great. Just mix powder, bag it and drop in the can then put the lid on. Small ones hold about 10lb large ones holds almost 20 if I recall.

    Smile Buld Powder Storage

    Paper bags of powder in a .50 caliber ammo can. Use VCI paper in can. Make sure seal is good.
