Nice pics and probably helpful but as commented before...lots of potential problems and dangerous situations trying to ID powder by pictures...I look at several of the tubular rifle powders and ball powders and that could be a real trap...but again..interesting and probably helpful in some circumstances.

Of note - many pistol powders, especially of the round disc or flake type come in 14 oz containers as one pound or 16 oz would not fit into a standard one pound container (less density)

But, I guess everybody knows this but I thought I would mention it.

Great photos! That being said, I believe that using photos for general instruction about powders is a good thing. I think using photos to identify an unknown powder is a very chancy thing, and should generally not be done. A "type" of powder is fine, but apart from those that are a dead giveaway, e.g., the "dot" powders and 700-X (white dots), I'd be very reluctant to put a label on a specific unknown powder. On the rare occasion when there's some I haven't been able to identify, it goes into the flower bed. Makes great fertilizer.

Old thread, I know, but it's a fascinating thread for a couple reasons. I'm not worried about identifying a powder by a photo, only an idiot would do that. I don't hang with idiots.

I noticed that Varget, which I've never tried, doesn't look like it would meter all that well, yet it's the one that many rifle guys swear by.

It surprises me to see that it doesn't appear that it would be that accurate by volume.
