Just curious about having too much smokeless powder on hand? How much is considered too much to safely have in the loading room of a residential home?
Just asking for opinions from others. It seems like as one progresses in this hobby, the powder stores go up and up from catching a sale, wild hairs to try something different, aquiring new weapons to load for. Seems like before you know it, there is 20 or 30 pounds of powder. I always figured if stored properly in original containers, cool and dry, separate from primers, it was relatively safe barring a home fire.
I once knew an old reloader who taught my dad, I bet he had way over 100 pounds of various powders, most in huge kegs. He reloaded for several shooting clubs and the local LE folks. He also had more safes and gun cabinets full of weapons than most gun stores stock!
Thanks for the opinions. Great forum here!
