    I was just given a three pound cage of Hercules Green Dot in the old metal powder cage. Looking back in history this powder had to be purchased back in the 60's. It is still sealed with the metal lid. Is this still safe to use or should I just save the cages (empty) as a collection pcs.

    I just finished up some old green dot that came in the older fiber drum, it worked fine, just go and buy a new bottle of barrell cleaner, that stuff sure leaves some crap behind!

    The powder should be fine and it will load some excellent handicap shells. The old Green Dot will leave a little more residue in the barrel than the current Green Dot. That may require you to wipe the inside of the barrel three times instead of two times.
