Alliant Sport Pistol Powder
Every bottle of Alliant Smokeless Powder is guaranteed by a century of manufacturing experience and the industry’s most stringent quality control systems. To maintain uniformity, the chemical composition, grain shape and size, and overall density are continually verified and evaluated in a ballistics lab.
Action and precision Shooters want steady, clean-burning propellant that allows them to perform at their best when a competition is at stake. The Alliant Sport Pistol Powder meets these requirements with exceptionally dependable cycling, good charging and case fill, and ballistics that lend themselves to a wide range of popular loads. The low-muzzle-flash formulation of Alliant Sport Pistol is also suited for polymer-coated bullets.
Other double base powders can dissolve the polymer coatings at the bullet base, exposing the lead to vaporization during the ballistic cycle. The medium-fast-burning Sport Pistol is also quite temperature stable, so there is little velocity fluctuation to be concerned about during seasonal contests.
Warnings from the Manufacturer:
- 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.
- Clean-burning formulation
- Extremely reliable cycling for competitive shooters
- Optimized for polymer-coated bullets
- Versatile ballistics
- Excellent charging and case fill
- Low muzzle flash

Tried different powders for 9mm that worked fine but all had issues with metering. This one solved that problem, fine grain meters great and provides accurate loads.

This powder meters very well out of my Hornady LNL Progressive press powder hopper. It has good case volume and seems to have good and consistent ignition. The powder is similar to Power Pistol in my eyes, without the extra flash. Even with a near full charge with plated bullets in my 9mm, the cases only fly about 5 feet or so from me, making brass policing easier. I will definitely order this again…I just wish it were easier to find.

Have loaded 300 9 mm rounds an they all shot accurately. Gun was still pretty clean. Plan on getting more of this powder

My favorite powder thus far. Cool and clean burning, meters very well, and has load data for polycoated bullets! The only bad thing about it is that it’s not easy to find.
