Okie...: Perhaps there is one point in this debate that you really haven't considered, that may, or may not have some bearing. I guess it depends on one's point of view. You've stated that you've been loading for over forty years... good on ya. The loading world needs people with diverse experience to pass on their knowledge. However, with that experience and knowledge come responsibility. You're not sitting in some hunting camp with a bunch of old school buddies rehashing the good old years or pooling your experiences and deciding to try something that is a bit less than mainstream, or the proven and accepted method. Instead, you're posting on a loading forum intended to teach the young and uninformed how to embark on a career of loading in a safe and previously approved manner. Without trying to be insulting, the simple truth is many prospective loaders who visit this forum are only slightly above the level of being able to spell gun without being spotted the G and the N. Although your motivation may indeed have been well meaning your comments about mixing unknown powders was totally irresponsible given the potentially tenuous environment. Perhaps comments, or suggestions such as those would be better suited for an audience of experienced and knowledgeable loaders rather than the uninformed and easily influenced.
