Real fast, ’cause I got an errand to run… I would vote “no” on that for powder storage.  BP comes in 1lb cans.  Putting a whole bunch of loose powder in that thing would make one helluva bomb… and that would be bad.  I’m going to build a proper storage box.  Use wood and line it with copper sheet, storing the individual cans in it.  Or, you could use a wooden cabinet, also lined with copper.  Thing is, you’re trying to minimize things like static electricity and sparks.  A big old steel can?  Erm… not so much.  It might be fine for liquids, but not BP.


Skylighter is where I got my start.  They got a lot of good info there.  Will post more later…
