    I have alot of bulk powder that needs to be stored...I have some us army aluminium containers that seal...The powder is ball...Might there be an reaction between the metal and powder....?

    Also have some 4895...How would the ether and aluminium get along?.....Thanks

    I keep my 1 lb powder bottles in some Ammo cans with a packet of desiccant thrown in to absorb moisture, if any is present when the can is closed. (The can is gasket sealed but to be triple sure?)

    Cartridge cases are also an example of powder containers...
