Default 777 powder and Black Mag powder mixed

Hey Guys,
I did something stupid. I split a can of black mag with a friend and put mine in one of my old 777 cans. Well you guessed it, there was some
777 still in the can. Does anyone have any idea how to seperate it?
The 777 grains are a little larger.

Thanks,
wod288

Unless you find a strainer that's between the sizes of both granules, you are unfortunately S.O.L - unless you pour it on a table & separate it by hand.... which could take a long-long time.

wod288, it makes great fertilizer. Pour it on the lawn or garden..... using it might be risky.....

I agree the powder is unusable. The formulations of the two are drastically different and what the combination would do is definately something I would not care to try. Sorry about that (maybe that is why the cans say do not put any other powder in this can).

Perhaps the best would be to dump it out.

Although, I personally would likely shoot it up with very light plinking loads.

The problem with using it is it would have to be PERFECTLY BLENDED, or it would vary considrably from shot to shot!

I suppose this would not matter if you were shooting beer cans with it at 25 yards, using 40 grains or so and a round ball.....

Correct, with very light loads you canoften have quite a variance of velocity and the accuracy is still ok at short ranges.
