A couple of mine are repeats but show different perspective.













Those are the few I have for now.

I know this is an old thread, and I agree with A Patriot about not using photos to identify powder. But I found being able to see the different powders so clearly quite helpful. I already have my own that I use, but I am still fairly new to reloading, so it is nice to compare.

Thanks for the photos.

While not as useful as the OP's close-up photos of various powders, I still like to see my powdershelf look like this



I get really nervous when the stash gets low, especially of my favorites.

I have 2 one pounders and 1 8 pounder, mostly of Titegroup. I got into reloading at the wrong time.

Possibly, you might take offense to this but my thoughts are that powder should be stored in wood walled containers at least one inch thick separate from powders.

SAMMI has published guidelines for powder & primer storage.

In the event of a powder fire just leave.

Just saw my pics died somewhere along Photobucket's journey of "upgrades" but I can't edit the post so I will repost them. If a mod would please delete that post I would appreciate it.
