    OK, I'm making a new cabinet for my reloading room to hold powders, and I want to make it ready to hold all the various size powder bottles. Off hand, I only have one pound containers of Varget and Unique, so I'm really needing to know how tall the 8 lbs. bottles are from the various powder makers.

    My bottle of Unique is 9" tall, so I had intended to leave 10" between the shelves. Will this be enough clearance to fit all of the bigger bottles in there, or do I need to increase that?

    Also, I have a bunch of scrap 2x8 around, so the cabinet will be a dab over 7" deep. That should be plenty, I think, but please let me know if you think that would be lacking.

    I just measured the 8# of unique 12" high, 11" deep, and 8" wide.
    My 4# of unique is 12-1/2" high, 7" deep, and 4-1/2" wide.
