An older friend who doesn't reload anymore just gave me some Norma 204 and Norma MRP. What calibers will those two reload? Anybody ever use them.\? These cans are old but I don't think they are unusable. Any information will certainly be appreciated.

Are the cans opened?

If not, then OK.....but if opened, I'd pour 'em out. JMO, but I'm very wary of using old opened cans of gunpowder from someone else's loading bench. You can't be 100% certain of what is in those cans.... :?

MRP is an excellent gunpowder for 7mm Mag, .300 Mag., etc.

Both cans have been opened. I would not worry (much) about the gentleman who gave them to me but I'm not sure where got them from. He may or may not have acquired them new. I'm confident they will make nice shelf decorations with the rest of my powders, mabye. Thanks for the input gentlemen.

I will go with xtimnerman on this one too. Use it as fertilizer. Powder is cheaper than a trip to the hospital and a new gun
