Re: managing powder lots

Thanks for the help.. just the info I was looking for..
As it turns out, the 1st pound canister I just used up happens to be the same lot # as the next 2, except its 3rd shift, vs. 2nd on the next 2.

I wound up being able to load 6 rounds of the old having about 20 grains left over which I mixed with the new bowl o fRE-22 and made the rest of my 19 rounds with that..
Nevertheless I still backed off a few (from 49.2 to 48.2) reworking the load up to 49.0 and no pressure signs, its even hard tlo tell with CCI BR2 primers anyway. I actually found a decent cold weather load, but it may even be this new stuff.. no chrony so I will keep it on the mild(er) side for now.
Next Iíll try some H4831sc that I will work on which should have a better temperament.
Thanks again.
