Alliant Power Pistol

Alliant Power Pistol “Designed for high performance in semi-automatic pistols”. Manufacturer’s Load DataChemistry and pictures.

Bottom Line: 👍 Lots of fun, good performance.

Pros:

  • Big bright muzzle flash and boom. Lots of fun at the range. Probably the biggest flash you can get in common automatic pistol calibers.
  • Easy to get good performance with this powder.
  • Meters well
  • Decent amount of load data, but mostly for jacketed bullets.

Cons:

  • Big bright muzzle flash and boom. Not as bad as H110, but definitely to levels where it can be distracting to new shooters, and compromise night vision.
  • Largest size it’s sold in is 4 pounds.
