With you on that, pretty much exactly. Powder does not sit in the hopper and the can stays on the bench. One other thing I do is when I “open” a can of powder, I have a pack of those colored circles for file folders and I put a dot on the cap and write the date that I broke the seal on it. Just gives me an idea and marks how long a powder has been open plus if I have multiple cans of a powder I know which is open.If this has already been mentioned, I apologize. I load for a lot of different calibers, especially in handguns. I use a number of different powders; W231, Unique, Power Pistol, H110, AA#7, etc. I have a rule. I always leave the powder container for the powder I'm using on the bench instead of putting it back in the powder storage box. When I finish loading the last round, I ALWAYS dump the unused powder in the powder measure back into it's original container. Don't kid yourself. You can't rely on your memory or the appearance of the powder. If you wait a few days and dump the powder in to the wrong container, the results later can be catastrophic.
