How to pour grits, shot, and powder?
Handling grits, powder, and shot can become messy in a hurry if ya pour into a hopper from the shot bag, powder bottle, or box of grits. My method isn't fool proof, but it gets the job done safely and sure. I have small plastic boxes with a snap lid that I've drilled a 1" hole in a corner of the lid. Fill the box with yer need and fix the lid. Now, ya can pour into a powder funnel, shot hopper, or grits funnel. The size of the plastic box allows pouring the the powder, grits, or shot back into the box from the reservoirs. Then, pour the stuff back into the storage container. The boxes are simple to clean and are transparent. Works for me.
