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. 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.
Every container of Alliant smokeless powder is backed by a century of manufacturing experience and the most exacting quality control procedures in the industry. The factory check and control chemical composition, the shape and size of powder grains, even the propellants' density and porosity. Samples of every batch are sent to the ballistics lab, testing for burning speed, among other things. Then, after blending batches together for exactly the right ballistic characteristics, Alliant use advanced computerised 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. After all, one of the reasons you're a reloader is so you'll know exactly what to expect every time you pull the trigger. With Alliant powders you will. Not only shell after shell, but also year after year.
