I opened up my last lb of RL-26 to make some test rounds for the 280 AI. When I finished there was about 1 cup of powder left in the powder measure, I grabbed the funnel and dumped it back in it’s original bottle. About the time the last few grains drained out, it hit me I used the wrong funnel. I have 2 funnels , a white and a red. Red is for powder, white for whatever. I had earlier used the white funnel to pour eliminator bore cleaner from the big bottle to a small one for the bench. Although it was a very thin film in the funnel, my guess is the whole pound, except for the 10 rounds I made up, is now contaminated. Ugh, I knew better and usually the funnel would have been cleaned and put away before i started working with powder.
