Blue Dot Left in Lee Pro Disk-OK?

I accidentally left some Blue Dot in my Lee Pro Auto Disk Measure, with the lid on, for a few nights. Is this going to still be OK to use?

The only thing I think that could be a problem is humidity. But it's pretty dry here in central Texas, with relative humidity in the 30% range. It's probably even drier in my garage where the press is. But I'm pretty new to this and thought it would be good to ask before I load a bunch more rounds that may not fire properly.

BTW- I just previously loaded my very first 50 rnds with my Lee Classic Turret press. 40 s&w with 180gr Berry's plated, with @8.35grains Bluedot in once fired Winchester brass (that I fired myself from WWB). I'm hoping this will be a very safe, accurate, and fun to shoot load for my first try.

It shouldn't be any problem with your powder left in the measure as long as it is dry.
I always empty mine when I am done, But that doesn't mean it is nescessary as long as it is kept dry.

The load you are planning on using sounds like a good mid-range load.

Good Luck.

If I plan on reloading with the same powder the next day I will throw in a couple small desiccant packs in the hopper and put the lid on it. I live in Ohio where the humidity is very high right now and I reload in my basement witch has cement floors and block walls so its a little damper than the rest of the house. I haven't had any problems yet.

If you plan to leave powder in the hopper, remember to clear the work bench of any other powders and leave only the canister that the powder in the hopper came out of.

Sound advice, but blue dot is pretty easy to identify. There are blue dots.
