Hardcore Smuggling

I’ve been gone a while and am playing Hardcore now.

Can other Hardcore characters access your loot that is stashed with a smuggler? If a Hardcore character gets killed, does his (or her) loot that is already stored with the smuggler survive?

Thank you.

The shared stash survives, the personal stash does not.

Thank you.

Maybe I’m doing something wrong. I just created a second hardcore character, even though my first hardcore character is still alive. When the second character went to Carlile the Smuggler, there were no items in storage from my first hardcore character.
