    Spontaneous combustion sounds pretty serious, especially since I store all my powder together. Luckily the pound of 4007SSC I have is not in this recall.

    I wonder if this is why they have discontinued 4007.

    I've heard they were changing the formula for it. I like 4007 in my short mags, hopefully it doesn't go away.
