    I am putting shelves in a metal cabinet (36"x36") to store my powder and primers. Was going to put 3 shelves in it but then thought about 8# jugs. How much room should I leave for tall stuff.

    8# jugs of Hodgdon are 10 1/2" tall. I have them on shelves that are 11 1/4" tall.
    5# jugs of Alliant powder are 12" tall though....

    Smart to ask and check First......I built mine, only to find 8# Titegroup jugs are taller than others. It measured 12.25" and is the tallest that I have.

    Thanks for the info. That helps, I'll leave 12.25" to the bottom shelf and divide up the rest for the smaller stuff.
    Much appreciated.
