The world was first introduced to Alliant Steel in 1998. Steel was supposed to increase the efficiency of waterfowl loads loaded with shot. Because it burns more slowly than Blue Dot, the standard steel shooting charger, it is not recommended for rapid fire. The most reliable combustion rate for towing heavy loads is low. In recent years, non-toxic hunting loads like Hevi-shot and ITX have made steel a popular choice. Both Unique and Alliant advise against using them for cover-based scaling.
This smokeless powder is called Alliant STEEL and is used to make steel shot. As a waterfowl shotshell powder, it generates high velocities for steel shots at manageable pressures in loads of 10 and 12 gauge.
New waterfowl shotshell special powder enables high pressures and safe steel shot velocities for 10 and 12 gauge loads. Two ounces of value can be obtained from purkey loads. Delivering peak performance in any climate is a given. Analyzed the sole powder capable of loading steel and other non-toxic shotshells. All the grains are the same size and shape.
Alliant steel Smokeless Powder is backed by a century of experience in production and the industry’s most cutting-edge quality assurance practices, all of which are evident in every can. Tests and measurements of chemical composition, grain shape and size, and overall density must be performed regularly in a ballistics laboratory to ensure consistency in ballistics.
Do not exceed the loads shown in the guide for reloaders.
No two powders mix, irrespective of type, brand or source.
Do not replace any smokeless powder with Black Powder or Black Powder.
