I recently came into ownership of a batch of reloading supplies, included was a very old can of Unique powder. It's a cardboard can sealed with a plastic cup stopper. Opening it up, the powder looked fine. No odd smell. So anyway, being the hoader that I am I decided to load a few rounds (30) of 44 mags with it, using my go-to target recipe of 9 grains under a 240 gr lead flatnose to see how this old stuff holds up. I'll use a Taurus Tracker as the test mule. If it seems OK, I'll try and chronograph them to see what if any difference there is/was. This load is a "middle of the road" load that yeilds 1000 fps out of my 5.5 inch barreled Rugers.
