Okay, y’all are going to think that I’ve
lost my dern mind, but yes, this is a review of a coffee cup. Hodgdon
Powder Company markets some of the best and most useful hand
loading powders available. When I am loading for just about any
cartridge or shotshell, I find myself reaching for Hodgdon
Powders more than any other. The good folks at Hodgdon have the
best online source of load data anywhere, and it is available
free of charge to anyone. That is a good service, and greatly
appreciated by handloaders. They also market a very
extensive line of Hodgdon, IMR, and Winchester
Lately, when drinking coffee, I find myself
reaching for my Hodgdon mug more than any other. In fact, since
I obtained this mug, I have used none of my other extensive and
eclectic collection of coffee cups. I like a good cup of coffee
each morning, and throughout the day in cool weather, and I
detest both bland coffee and dinky little delicate girly coffee
This Hodgdon mug is a heavy duty unit, weighing
in at about one and a quarter pounds, empty. It is large, thick,
and most importantly, has a good big loop handle so that a

I like good coffee, not the fancy flavored
coffee-of-the-month type stuff, but just good 100 percent
Columbian Wal-Mart stuff, with nothing added.
I never intended to do a review of a coffee mug,
and up until today I would have bet heavily against such an
idiotic idea, but I got to thinking that as much time as I spend
loading ammo and bench testing in cool weather, there is usually
a good cup of coffee sitting there beside the cartridge cases,
bullets, and gunpowder. It might as well be a good mug that I

Chris and Mike and the other folks
at Hodgdon will most likely think that I have been sniffing too
much gunpowder, but I have reviewed other products in the past
that were neither as useful nor affordable as this big ol’
Hodgdon mug. Life is too long to endure using a sissy
coffee cup. Y’all better get you one while you can.
Alright, you can call the nut wagon to come take me away now,
but just let me bring my coffee cup.
