Alliant Sport Pistol
« on: June 10, 2017, 05:29:31 PM »
Anyone try out this new powder yet?   Alliant has published a fair amount of data for it:




Looks like a pretty clear 9mm minor powder to me.  Anyone curious enough yet?  ;)

Just read this thread....
https://www.thehighroad.org/index.php?threads/new-alliant-sport-pistol.816514/

If I had the equipment to chronograph then I would! I have BE-86 and it's an awesome powder. Trying to burn through my 700X and if I could find some of this Sport Pistol to try, it could be a replacement for 700X...

I have to many different powders on hand. I am running out of room to store them. I need to shoot more to make room for the handful of powders I want to try.

I put myself on a powder restriction.

I haven't seen it for sale in any of the places I normally buy powder.  From what I've read of it over the past several months, it really doesn't fit into my powder needs.  For warm loads, I use Power Pistol, BE-86 or several other different powders.  I don't shoot games where you need "minor or major" loads, so that aspect doesn't interest me.  I load for accuracy most of the time, and if a load or powder won't shoot more accurately than what I've been loading in the past, then I don't buy it.

I normally buy my powders in 8 pound kegs, and usually multiples of those to get the same powder lot.  If I do happen to run across a 1 pound bottle of Sport Pistol, I'll probably buy it, just to see if it is more accurate than some of my mainstay powders.

Hope this helps.

I am still working my way through some Prima V.  I am keen on something better with coated bullets so if the price stays there I will try it

Just think back 4 or 5 yrs ago and the powder position a lot of us where in. People were grabbing anything they could find.

These days are real good.

I was born into reloading in those days. I still can't let go of the hoarding mentality.

At the range today I asked them to order me a pound of Sport pistol to try.

Where's Wobbly or Fred?


I'd love to try some, and I've been sort of looking for it. But I don't really need it because I'm working my way through 12 lbs of Clays. Must have that same "bug" as ID.... powder collection-itous.

Still have 3# or more 7625 and  3# or more CSB 5 to play with.
Vit is my go-to powder.

Don't need to fix what ain't broke (except me). ;)
