    Default Help with powder container dimensions

    Hey guys,
    I am building a cabinet for powder storage I would like to get the dimensions of 8lb hodgden containers, and 5lb alliant containers.
    So I can build the shelves to accomadate the said powder containers.

    I am thinking about using an anti static rubber material to line the cabinet walls.If anyone has any ideas or experience on this I would appreciate any info.
    Thanks
    Jesse

    Hay Jesse
    I have a drill jig I made to drill 1/4" pin holes for adjustable shelves if you want to use it? Or you could make your own, don't take much to do. Can’t help on the other stuff, other than to say the blasters I have known would use nothing but wood. Been a long time and they may have changed by now.

    Smile Jugs!!!

    My 8 lb. jug of Hodgdon H380 is; 10 1/2 in.tall x 7 in. wide x 4 1/2 deep.
    IMR4064 is the same.
    Accurate5744 is; 11 in. tall x 5 1/2 in. wide x 5 1/2 deep.
    Alliant "Unique" is; 10 5/8 in. tall x 6 1/2 in. wide x 10 in. deep.
    Measurments are "tight"
    The "Unique" came in a surprisingly large container, it is a somewhat fluffy powder, so there may be some variation in sizes, depending on density.
    These are 8 lb. jugs, i don't have any 5 lbs.
