    I have some H-1000 powder that is probably close to 10 years old. It has always been stored inside. Any problem using it? I would hate to get rid of 8lbs if it is still good.

    Sealed containers which are kept on cool, dry conditions last MUCH longer than the average reloader. Sounds funny but it's true.

    As stated if it has been kept cool and dry it shuld be fine. If you run into any rusty red dust it is turning bad and should be disposed of properly.
