    Mix it with your next keg, or use it as fertilizer if you decide you never want to use that brand/specification again.

    MMmmm………………
    That must be some small cartridge are you loading for!

    Even a .22 Hornet uses around 10 grains of powder so would only make 50 rounds!

    I recently went to all 8 pound kegs. I hate 1 pounders because it’s not long before you are faced with this issue. I load it until I can’t make another round so usually less than 40 grains. I take that 40 and I dump it in the grass.

    Just sprinkle it on your lawn. Makes good fertilizer.
