Reloading - Blending powders?:
Quick reloading question: I find myself using large quantities of
IMR 4064. I don't choose to keep case quantities in my condo. Is it OK
to blend different lot numbers and manufacture dates to maintain consistency
or should you just chrono and check characteristics from lot to lot? Thanks....

POWDER BLENDING; NO!
TOO MANY VARIABLES! Moisture content, or lack of, Age, slight changes in batches chemistry while mixing can be most bogus bad news for the Iselin Dude. You're better chrono'ing each batch loaded and keeping up the log book.
