Just curious... do any of you guys know if there is a "legal" limitation on how much smokeless gun powder it is legal to have on hand for handloaders? I have no clue if there would be local, state or federal laws on this, but like most of us who have been handloading for more years than I care to think about, I wonder if I am legal in the strict sence of the word... :eek:

10-3.7 Smokeless propellants intended for personal use in quantities not exceeding 20 lb (9.1 kg) may be stored in original containers in residences. Quantities exceeding 20 lb (9.1 kg), but not exceeding 50 lb (22.7 kg), may be stored in residences if kept in a wooden box or cabinet having walls of at least 1-in. (25.4-mm) nominal thickness.

Nowe, the big question is ... who the **** is going to inspect your house for how much powder you have stored? (It is also notable that certain areas will further restrict the amount of powder you have on-hand, if you are dumb enough to ask.)
