As a shotgun powder it can be loaded into 24 gram to 28 gram loads in 12 gauge with consistency and the cleanest burning characteristic.
As the name implies, this spherical propellant was designed for accuracy. Titegroup's unique design provides flawless ignition with all types of primers, including lead-free versions. Unlike pistol powders of the past, powder position in large cases (45 Colt, 357 Magnum and others) has virtually no effect on velocity and performance. Cowboy Action, Bullseye and Combat Shooters should love this one! Titegroup has it all - low charge weight, burns clean, mild muzzle report and superb, uniform ballistics.
Universal gunpowder handles the broadest spectrum of cartridges for both pistol and shotgun. This is the Clays gunpowder technology designed for 28 gauge shooters. From the 25 ACP to the 44 magnum and 28-gauge to 12-gauge, UNIVERSAL gunpowder provides outstanding performance. As with all Clays gunpowder series, these powders burn clean and uniformly when fired.
A fast burning, low density, single base, tubular propellant most suitable for .38 Special and .45 Auto cartridges. Also applicable for 7.65 Pi, 9 mm Makarov or 9 mm Browning court cartridges. Lovex fastest handgun propellant.
ZIP is a clean burning, double-base propellant designed for a wide range of handgun calibers. Low charge weights make it the most economical and versatile choice for high volume shooters with the added benefit of low recoil, low flash and minimum residue. 9mm, 40 S&W, and 45 ACP are just a few of the cartridges that are well-matched with this powder. Made in Belgium.
ReloadSwiss RS 12
RS12 has been specifically developed as complement to the Reload-Swiss RS portfolio. At the moment of launch it is ReloadSwiss' quickest powder. It is suitable for many pistol and smaller revolver calibers. For applications which do not result satisfying in combination with RS20 in regard to unburnt residues. Standard calibers .38 Special , .40 S&W, .45 ACP, 9 mm Luger.
Rottweil P 801

It's minorBurning slower than P 805 what itclassified in roughly the same area of use: 6.35 mm and 7.65 mm,9 mm short, plus the Luger cartridges andespecially the .45 Auto are for P 801susceptible. There are also cartridgeslike the 9 x 18 mm Ultra and the old one.38 S&W. In the .38 Special, the P 801 impresseswith an excellent performance behindthe 9.6 g wad cutter.

Shooters World Clean Shot
Ballistic results for this propellant show it to be highly versatile, with low residue in a myriad of pistol cartridges. It has similar burn rate to Winchester 231, Hodgdon Titegroup , and Accurate No. 2 . This propellant can be used in virtually all pistol cartridges, and 12 gauge shot shell target loads. A fine grain spherical propellant, it meters extremely consistently with volumetric chargers. When used with certain shot shell reloading machines, it is recommended that a PC-PB-2 Powder Baffle be installed to ensure proper machine/propellant interaction. Due to the gas generation rate of this propellant, loaders can achieve high velocities with .45 Auto, .38 SPL, and .45 Colt and similar low-pressure cartridges. This propellant will also enable cycling and nominal velocities in high-pressure semi-automatic firearms chambered in 9mm, .40 S&W, .380 Auto, and others. Additionally, this propellant can be used for reduced loads in virtually any revolver cartridge, whether magnum or standard.
Shooters World Ultimate Pistol
This new propellant has no comparable market equivalent. It is faster in burn rate than Auto Pistol, and slower in burn rate than Clean Shot. Every manufactured batch is tested for superior ignition with BOTH lead-free and standard lead styphnate primers. This ensures superior ignition to any other pistol powder on the market. It is perhaps the most versatile of all propellants across the .380 Auto, 9mm Luger, .40 Smith and Wesson, .38 Special, 38 Super, and .45 Automatic cartridges. Shooters World have tested this propellant to a charge weight of only 3 grains in a .44 Remington Magnum with a cast bullet, and it STILL ignited well! From a competition standpoint, Ultimate Pistols burn rate is similar to Winchester Autocomp. However, the burn rate modifier of Ultimate Pistol is incorporated within the propellant grain. This provides more reliable ignition and consistent velocity than competitor's propellants of similar gas generation rate. The grain geometry of Ultimate Pistol promotes highly consistent charging. With a volumetric powder dump, Shooters World have found total charge variation no more than 'one tenth of a grain'. That's +/- 0.05 grains. The consistency of charging, deterrent location, burn rate and peculiar quality assurance testing of this propellant have proven to contribute to superior accuracy. The gas generation rate of this propellant should enable 9mm Luger, .380 Automatic, .45 Auto, .38 Super, .38 Special, and .40 S&W loaders to reach 'self defense' velocities, while maintaining reasonable pressure levels. Too, this propellant works well at reduced charge weights for low-recoil applications. Shooters World tests and publishes real-world starting loads for all of Shooters World's pistol propellants. Shooters World purposefully take Shooters World's test load charge weights down to failure, sticking bullets in Shooters World's barrels, squibs, short strokes, stove pipes and every other ballistic anomaly. Then, Shooters World clearly annotate with published reloading data where a hand loader can be assured of starting success. Ultimate Pistol does contain a level of flash suppressant.
SNPE Vectan BA 9
The powder was first made for the 9 mm Parabellum. It is suitable for medium handgun cartridges. Since it is of relatively high energy yield, it should not be used in old or antique weapons whose locks are no longer as stable
SNPE Vectan BA9 1/2
Ba9 1/2 : this new powder between Shooters World traditional Ba10 and Ba9 covers a wide range of calibers and is perfectly adapted to the 9 x 19mm, .38 Super Auto, .38 Special, .357 Mag., .40S&W, .44S&W Special, .44 Remington Magnum, .45ACP, .45 Colt
The N320, formerly known as 3N22, is a fast burning, porous handgun powder. N320 is one of Vihtavuori's most popular handgun powders and can be used for a wide range of pistol calibers from .32 to .45. It is most commonly used by sport and hobby shooters such as Cowboy Action shooters, but as a very reliable gun powder it is also suitable for authority applications. The powder type is tubular, with grain dimensions 1,1 mm x 0,8 mm (length x diameter), and as all Vihtavuori's reloading powders it includes the added decoppering agent.
Vihtavuori N32C Tin Star
The N32C (TIN STAR) is a specialized powder intended to provide low bulk density for cartridges that were originally designed for Cowboy Action Shooters shooting lead bullets with single-action revolvers and lever-action rifles. The use of more conventional gun powder results in poor load density, and fails to adequately fill the case. Vihtavuori's N32C corrects this problem, and is ideally suited to many of the older cartridges used in Cowboy Action shooting, such as the .38 Special, .44 Special and .45 Colt. The biggest benefit of N32C is its high loading volume. This porous powder fills the case much better than most conventional smokeless propellants, providing the loading density needed for those classic black powder cartridges. Compared to N320, the case filling ratio can be up to 50% higher. This also makes the powder safer to use - a reloader won't be able to make double or triple loads in big volume cases by accident. Tin Star gives reliable ignition in all conditions, burns clean and leaves very little fouling or residue. It meters easily, making the task of producing high quality and uniform loads that you can depend on just that much easier. Handloads that you can depend on, shot, after shot, after shot. Vihtavuori N32C Tin Star delivers! Other than being ideally suited to many of the older cartridges used in Cowboy Action Shooting, N32C is also very suitable for several other pistol calibers. It is also used for subsonic and blank loads.
