    Was there ever a powder withb a purple flake? Or does Red Dot sometimes fade after time?

    I am using some 30+ year old Red Dot that the color dots have almost completely faded. I called the company (Alliant) and was told that before Alliant took over the powder that problem occured with time. I was told to spread some out on a sheet of paper and look closely. I finally found some flakes with red (actually a dark red coloration), started loading very low pressure loads and worked up. It shoot just fine!
