For any who have never seen bad smokeless powder. This is what was left of a half-pound of Dupont IMR 4350 that was given to me several years ago.
I have no idea how old it was but it is gone. I ignited it and it burned slowly and with less energy than fresh powder. And, it had an acrid smell and was in the old metal can.
Keep yer powder dry!

Been shooting up a bunch of Alcan 5 which has to be at least 40 years old and was stored in my Dad's non climate controlled barn in Texas. Seems to be fine. I'm sure some are more sensitive to temperature than others. It's also in a cardboard container with a metal lid. Maybe that makes a difference.
