First Look: Alliant Powders for 2016
January 12, 2016
Repeatable long-range accuracy demands propellant that behaves consistently across temperature extremes. New Alliant Powder Reloder 16, like Reloder 23 and AR Comp, accomplishes this by using TZ technology. It manipulates the response of the material and resists the natural tendency to generate more pressure at higher temperatures and less pressure at lower temperatures.
The Reloder 16 burn rate is slightly faster than that of Reloder 17, well within the 4350 burn speed band. This makes it ideal for traditional hunting cartridges such as 30-06 Spring. and 270 Win., as well as 6.5mm target loads and tactical applications where temperature stability is required.
The new Reloder 16 also contains a proprietary de-coppering additive to diminish copper fouling in rifle bores. This new formulation contains no DNT or DBP and is made in Sweden for Alliant Powder.
Muzzleloader hunters need propellant that ignites reliably and burns consistently even in extreme weather conditions. New Blue MZ™ from Alliant Powder delivers on this tall order.
The 50-grain equivalent pellets produce higher velocities than competing pellets at safe pressures and ignite reliably with 209 shotshell primers. Blue MZ also provides outstanding accuracy with a wide range of popular bullets. The clean-burning formulation allows for fast and easy cleaning with water-based solvents.
The new Blue MZ powder will be available in a 48-pack of 50-grain pellets at most major retailers.
