Thanks, all, for the advice and information. Have about 1/4 pound of improperly stored powder. Strong ammonia smell. Don't want to risk using it.

DEFINITELY get rid of that. I think that when it comes to this subject, and even reloading in general, my Mom's old advice comes in handy - "When in doubt, don't."

The ingredients are inherently an environmentally safe mixture. Burning it is also environmentally safe unless you are disposing of a few tons of it.

So would the gun powder be too concentrated and potentially burn the lawn?

If you dump it in a pile perhaps.
Just spread it around. I fling it right out of the bottle as I walk across the yard.
Friends love to give me old powder like they're doing me a favor getting rid of stuff they stored in the shed for 20 years of hot, humid Summers.
Most burns my nose and goes in the yard. Of the last 6 or more pounds I've been given I got maybe 1/4 lb of Unique that was good. The rest is pushing up grass.

I have a gunpowder-related issue. I have a 1916 .32 cal Pocket Colt. A friend said modern gunpowder will corrode the barrel. Is that true? What ammo should I put through it? Also, where can I get an original holster for it?
