This propellant has no reloading powder exact equivalent. It is faster in burn rate than Accurate No.5, and slower in burn rate than Accurate No.2. This propellant is designed and tested to work with BOTH lead-free and standard lead styphnate primers. Shooters World, LLC distributes this propellant because of its unique capability to ignite well with lead-free primers. It is perhaps the most versatile of all pistol propellants across the .380 Auto, 9mm Luger, .40 Smith and Wesson, .38 Special, 38 Super, and .45 Automatic calibers. From a competition standpoint, this propellant has the burn rate similar to Winchester Autocomp. However, Autocomp has a burn rate modifier that can impede reliable and consistent ignition.
The burn rate modifier of D036-07 is incorporated within the propellant grain, and will provide more reliable ignition and consistency in velocity, than other propellants of this burn rate. The gas generation rate of this propellant should enable 9mm Luger, .380 Automatic, .45 Auto, .38 Super, and .40 S&W loaders to reach “self defense” velocities, while maintaining reasonable pressure levels. A spherical propellant, it meters through charge plates consistently and will work with a high-speed loader with very good flow. It does contain a level of flash suppressant.
Warning About Smokeless Powder:
- Do not exceed the loads displayed in the reloaders guide
- Never mix any two powders regardless of type, brand, or source
- Never substitute any smokeless powder for Black Powder or any Black Powder substitute
