Mixing 2 tins of H 1000 together ?? Can it hurt ?

Hello all !

I was just interested to know if you had 2 separate tins of half full h1000 and stuck them together would you notice all velocity changes ?

Cheers

Make up a few rounds a let us know
Heck , a guy may get more consistant results compared to changing from lot to lot.

DUH, I routinely take the last of a can of powder and mix it in with a new can of the same type. Never noticed a change in performance any worse than changing lot numbers.

Good hunting, Tom

We've had this thread get pretty fired up before in the past so let me just say that the math involved in this shows the answer. You'll get the idea if you consider the fact that the odds of getting two lots of powder to have the same identical burn rate aren't very good. Then adding the two together are going to make it slower overall or faster overall. Then the odds of getting a mix of 50/50 in any given charge in a non-fluid solution and oh my, my calculator won't go to that many digits!! Let's see, the odds of winning the Idaho state lottery are................

GG,

I toatlly agree with your thinking.

I was not sure if certain powders were more prone to this over the next ?

Is the H1000 generally consistant from batch to batch ?

Thanks all

I wouldn't hesitate to mix the last few grains of one in to a nearly full tin of another. But I agree with the above on mixing 50/50. Maybe it wouldn't hurt, but I personally just wouldn't want to chance it. If you had one of one very fast lot, and another of a very slow lot...it could IMO, create a problem.
