Re: storage of primers and powders

I keep my powder and primers in a old microwave that I put weather stripping on the door. Then put silica gel with them. Silica gel with ziplock bags works well to and is simple. Silica gel is a good investment it's fairly cheap and last for ever. When it turns pink you put it in the oven for 3 hrs til it dries out and turns blue.

Re: storage of primers and powders

It would be hard to turn on after I disconnected the power cord(didnt work Anyway) It's got 2 8lb jugs a few 1lb ers and a lot of primers. Old fridges work good too.
