Alliant has been around for over 125 years, as it was originally Hercules, then later the DuPont Company which was a leader in the explosives industry. Their powder is backed by over a century of experience and testing. All Alliant products are known and respected by their consistent quality and performance.
Blue Dot powder is considered a Shotshell powder but is also a good choice for Magnum pistol loads. It is consistent and accurate. Alliant has recipes for other handgun loads such as the 10mm, 45 Colt and 45 ACP as well.
Warnings: Never exceed the loads displayed in the reloaders guide. Never mix any powders regardless of type, brand, or source. Never substitute smokeless powder for Black Powder or any Black Powder substitute. Always store powder in its original container. Always use two or more current reloading manuals for load data.
