Propellant Description Name
WC820 Orignal application is for the U.S. Cal. .30 Carbine Ball M1 round. This lot loads at 13.5gr with 110gr FMJ projectile. This is a ball powder which can be loaded using Hodgdon H110 data. Ideal for .410 shotgun and the .357 & .44 Magnums. This is pulldown ball powder. SOLD OUT WC844 Just in, very limited supply. Original application is U.S. 5.56mm NATO Ball M193 (55gr) & M855 (62gr), plus Tracer M196 & M856. Typical starting load for 55gr bullet is 26gr, and 62gr bullet is 25gr. A ball powder which can be loaded with Hodgdon H335 data. Also works great in 7.62mm NATO (.308 Win.). This is pulldown powder. SOLD OUT IMR7383 This is a slow burning stick powder originally used for the Cal. .50 M48 Spotter/Tracer round. It is a very bulky powder, that has about the same propellant energy as IMR4831 by volume, but weighs less than the same volume of IMR4831. You can work up loads using IMR4831 data, reduced 15% by weight. It works great in my .25-06. This is new powder, not pulldown. $56/7# jug. WC857 New item. A slow burning ball type powder used in the .50BMG tracer ammo. This powder burns faster than the typical WC860-WC872 series of powders. Burn rate seems to be similar to Hodgdon H1000 or Reloder 25. An excellent choice for the .300 Win Mag, 7mm Mag, and other magnum type calibers. Good results in .25-06 with heavy bullets. This is pulldown ball powder from Lake City. $72/8# jug IMR5010 Original application is .50 Cal. BMG ammo. Same powder as originally sold by Hodgdon as H5010, and similar to their current 50BMG.

A ball powder originally used in the 20mm Vulcan round, until replaced by WC872. This powder is also very similar to Accurate Arms AA8700. Because of the lot to lot variations in burn rate, be sure to begin with listed starting load data. Works great in the .50BMG and other large capacity magnums. This is pulldown ball powder. $48/8# jug; $176/4-8# jugs ($44/jug); $240/6-8# jugs ($40/jug) WC872 Original application is U.S. 20mm Vulcan ammo.
