I started doing this for a while and thought I would share.

Yep. Med bottles make great containers for all types of shooting gear.  My mops, brushes, jags, etc. all go into one.  Spare cylinders, too, with a desiccant pak thrown in for good measure.  It is surprising that some people just throw those useful things away.

I too utilize an empty pillbottle in my possibles bag. I picked out four of them little yellow Lee powder scoops from the box of 15 or so, and they fit perfect in the lil container. Now I will not be losing one or having one broke in half from whatever might be on top of it in the bag. I am still looking for some small containers to hold 25-30gr of powder, so I can reload without measuring each charge in the field. Maybe 50 of them will do.
