    What is the proper way to dispose of it?
    Got any house plants? Vegetable garden perhaps? Makes for real good fertilizer!

    I will say it once more, please do not burn powder except when shootng. It is totally unnecessary.
    Sprinkle it on the lawn and water it. That is all that is necessary. You will have a nice green spot where you put it.
    Black powder is just as easy althouth it will not make your grass green. Sprinkle it and water.
    It is foolhardy to attempt to burn powder. Burning blackpowder is crazy and attempting to burn smokeless makes no sense.
    Be safe, sprinkle and water.
