Re: lot numbers on hodgdon
Well, the reality is you are b/w a rock and hard place.
1) you buy a pound, work up a load, go buy more in a 8 pound keg and get bad results, and you just wasted a lot of money.
2) you buy 8 pounds, try and work up a load, and if you do, great....you have plenty of powder left. If you don't, you just wasted money.
I think the advice given to me was to buy 8 pounds and work up from there and hope you get the load you are looking for. Of course, you can always switch bullets too. All is not lost, and Retumbo is a great powder, one of the best Hodgdon has ever come out with.
