Changed homes after 30 years and my area reserved for reloading is about 50% smaller. I was thinking about storing my reloading powders in one of those storage cabinets made out of plastic with a lock to keep the grandkids out. Planned to put it in the panic room due to lack of flammable materials but wonder if in case of a fire there would be less chance of any kind of explosion if it was stored out in open storage racks. I have a good deal of powder but its all stored in the original containers, plastic, paper, metal, ect. Figured to store the primers in a seperate location also under lock. Might be better off trying to find a fireproof door for the panic room and then it might not make much difference how its stored. Just wondering what some of you other shooters thought. Thanks for any input.

Thanks for the input, once the children were grown and gone I never thought ahead to grandchildren but now have one.
In answer to your question on the panic room, in my state they have started putting a cement room, 8" walls and ceiling that is part of the basement, its a 100 to 120 sq foot room with a single doorway with no actual door, to take shelter in case of Tornadoes. I have a couple of friends who have put vault doors on them for storage rooms but that wasn't what they were designed for.
