The smell of Gold Dots

Anyone notice Gold Dots (in this case 124+P) have quite a strong powder odor? Almost like some of the Russian stuff (Brown Bear in particular, but not as stinky as that). Doesn't bother me but I find it interesting that almost nothing else gives off that much odor.

I used some 2 year old GD stock recently and didn't notice anything. But the 4 year old AE I just used, now that stunk. I kept thinking I was being sprayed by a skunk. So I get what you are saying.

I love the smell of Gold Dots in the morning.

Edit: I fired thousands upon thousands of GD's at work on indoor ranges and never noticed any inordinate odor.

You wern't by chance one of those kids always sticking objects up their noses? I can't remember ever sniff testing my hollow points.

Can't say I could identify GD residue, but two of my favorite odors are Hoppe's #9 and burned gunpowder!

(I DO have a couple other favorites, too! )

Hoppe's #9 = Banana gasoline
