I have been told that these propellants are susceptible to moisture and should be discarded the following year. Does anyone have any experience with using the power or pellets the following year? or any recommendation for storing?
I have some Pyrodex that I have had for over 10 years and haven't noteced any problems with it yet. I personallty believe that if you keep it caped and in a cool place there won't be any ploblems with it.
If you're shooting from the same batch it should be fine. But if you're doing your range work shooting from a fresh batch and then travel to hunt and shoot from a stale batch (or vice-versa) you have stored there that will affect your zero.
Accuracy. What an incredible way to give yourself a true advantage.
Go to your club and get a bunch of guys together - and put a target out there at 250 meters. Break out the deer rifles and see who can shoot a decent group, even off of the bench, at this distance. I think you will be shocked at how few can do it.
So - with that in mind, I recently set out to try to develop a semi-custom rifle that I could afford and that would shoot - repeatedly - at MOA.
I started with a platform that I love...
