    I'd burn it.

    Spread it in your garden. Good for fertilizer now. Not much else.

    This is a pretty common thread, actualy, and, Neil Winston I believe, actually did some testing on one-or-more mixtures ... a-purpose. And he shot it up, too.

    His logic was (and I find it persuasive), that the mixture will be a little slower than Clays and a little faster than GD, but if you pick a good, conservative (read: 1140fps) Clays load, burn it up through your gunbarrels, and let your ash fertilize the weeds between line & traphouse.

    I had red dot and green dot mixed and since the red dot took the smaller bushing, I loaded it like red dot (by weight) and stayed light on charge of powder and shot. Worked fine

    You could do something similar

    Make pyrotechnics out of it, or throw it away. It has no firearm purpose, any more.

    Is your gun worth more than about 30 bucks worth of powder (at most)?
