I ran across a 15 pound steel drum/keg of IMR Hi-Skor 700X yesterday. It has labeling on top and on the side with a sealed plastic spout in the center of the top. Quantity is 15 pounds gross 12 pounds net. Based on that label I will assume that the container is 3 pounds and the powder is 12 pounds.
I haven't seen powder marketed this way so I was wondering how old it might be. My local powder supplier, http://www.brunoshooters.com/Merchan...Store_Code=BSS isn't familiar with powder sold in these quantities or steel containers.
After a quick look at IMR's web site it appears that they currently don't sell larger quantities than 8 pound plastic jugs.
Any idea on the age and if it is still available in these quantities. Any reason that they may have discontinued steel containers and pros and cons???
