Our Mission: Premium Performance, Consistent Quality
Firstly, every container of Alliant smokeless powder is backed by a century of manufacturing experience and the most exacting quality control procedures in the industry.
We check and control chemical composition, the shape and size of powder grains, even the propellants’ density and porosity. We send samples of every batch to our ballistics lab, testing for burning speed, among other things.
Then, after blending batches together for exactly the right ballistic characteristics, we use our advanced computerized equipment to test again.
The result: a line of products known and respected for consistent quality and performance — not only in the lab but especially on the firing line.
Summarily, with Alliant powders, you will. Not only shell after shell but also year after year.
Firstly, Alliant’s origins as a gunpowder manufacturer can be traced back more than 125 years to the DuPont Company, whose leadership position in the explosives industry is legendary.
Secondly, DuPont’s divestiture in 1912 created the Hercules Power Company as an independent entity and eventually resulted in Alliant becoming America’s premier gunpowder manufacturer.
The long, proud history of Alliant Powder began in 1872 as Laflin & Rand, later to become Hercules Powder Company — the most respected name in the reloading industry.
Also, We haven’t changed them in 100 years…except to make them better.
