Default Might help with powder question

I figured i'd post this picture to help clear things up on the powder
question of how long it last. I've had this can of powder since i was 15
years old that was 23 years ago when i got this set up for christmas.I
shot the gun 3 times that week shot it 5 times in 1998 and used 3 80g
loads the other day testing load differences on pro hunter.The can has been in the bottom of my gun cabinet this whole time never any extra
care besides opening it only three times.Took pic of gun, cva blazer,
patch, powder,speer .490 round balls .Thought some of you might enjoy.
By the way, the price tag on the bullet box of 100 $6.85

thats interesting .

i got a can of 2f from 1965,thats 43 years old.

price on can is 3.85.

my box of bullets hornady are 1.99 a box of 100 .490 bullet.

i keep these and use my newer ones,just something i do.

take your can and turn it upside down yearly, a powder expert at range told me to do that,makes it last longer,i guess.
