Yea -- I have read about it ... seems more are trying it lately. Many use a "shot" of Bullseye added to their normal powder in magnum rifle loads to ensure all powder is burned ... I would NEVER try it!! Guns cost too much and I do not want to be "blind."!!

'Neck and the Captain have been giving me advice as I go down the path to reloading so I'll take their word. "Best of Both" sounds like a mix to hot to handle. I'll defer to their advice.

I would check on the burn chart first.
If I had some slow burning powder that I needed to get rid of, I'd mix. But I have a lot that needs the house cleared. Why mix?

I get rid of powder I don't want by

A. Giving it to someone who wants it

B. Pouring it in the flower bed using it as fertilizer

I like keeping all my fingers and hands attached to my body and would prefer not to pick metal out of my face....

ALot of very accomplish benchrest shooters mix rifle powders. I wouldnt mix handgun powders, but I DONT RECOMMEND IT FOR THE AVGERAGE JOE. Im not even savvy enough to do so. Yet i have seen it done religiously by benchrest champs.

I don't see where it would help the average Jo like me anyway. I'm sure there are some powders that could be mixed, but that's way there are so many powders, find one that burns right for you.

Somebody's crazy. The only time I mix powders is when I buy two or more cans of the same powder and I wanna guarantee consistency from container to container. Then I'm on a concrete floor mixing in glass bowls. (my wife loves that)
