    Very common in the 1960's.....my dad used to have one he took in and had filled from a large drum at the old original Curtis Nix Gun Shop.....when it was still in Curtis's garage!! Ah, the memories.......

    I think if I looked in the basement I could find one just like yours. Jerry

    Got one a little older that is pink rather than red. Probably was powder for skeet shells.

    Haven't seen one of those since I started loading in the very early 70's. I used to go to Paul Wammes gun shop (Wammes Gun's) when it was in an old gas station (across from the Dairy Queen) and buy a milkshake cup of Red Dot for $3.00. It came out to just about one pound. Ah, the good old days......

    Yup, have several of those (now filled with REX 1) several Green ones (filled with REX II) and a couple of brown ones that still have Herco in them. The price that I paid for them is still on them. The cheapest was $6.50 for a 3 pound keg. Yes the good old days. FD Oh by the way shot was $4.50 per 25 lb bag.

    I have one too. I still have an old Hi skor 700X tin that has the price of $4.70 on it. I think it is a 4# can. In the early sixties I got it with an old used Dl 105 pacific loader.

    I have an old can of Herco in a 3 pounder, probably from the late 40s? Still works magic for 1-1/4 ouncers for long shots with copper 5s. Hap
