|Powders: What are their characters?|
Hodgdon has acquired IMR Powder Co. While the powder will remain the same, packaging and prices will change in 2004.
A very fast burn rates powder that is relatively soft, progressive and elastic. It is clean burning and meters will to offer consistent loading. 12 gauge target and light field loads.
Considered to be a medium-fast burn rate powder. It covers high-performance, high-velocity 1 ounce to 1-1/8 ounce 12 gauge lead loads and 20 gauge 3/4 ounce to 7/8 ounce loads.
Specifically developed for the 12 gauge for trap, skeet, sporting clays and very light field loads. It is very clean burning for a double base powder.
Bullseye has the fastest burn rate of any accepted shotshell powder and, because of this, is the least elastic. It produces propellant gases faster than all other shotshell powders and therefore it runs very high pressures in everything except the lightest of loads. It has a very limited band of use.
Red dot is a good, economical choice for clay target loads. It is very efficient for light charges - confine it to 7/8 to 1-1/8 ounce charges.
