    A friend just got his first reloader. He texted a couple of us with some questions so basic that none of us would have thought to answer without being asked, such as what to put the powder in once opened? Of course we answered nothing but the original container. Same with primers. Unused stay in the primer boxes, not in a container lose. Guess I learned something... Never take anything for granted, and maybe we old guys should ask more questions than we answer???

    I've always used the original containers. I was surprised one day out at the range to see a bench rest shooter wirh his primers in a glass baby food jar. Yikes!
