Repeatable long-range accuracy demands propellant that behaves consistently across temperature extremes. New Alliant Powder Reloder 16, like Reloder 23 and AR Comp, accomplishes this world-class stability using TZ technology. It manipulates the response of the material and resists the natural tendency to generate more pressure at higher temperatures and less pressure at lower temperatures.
The Reloder 16 burn rate is slightly faster than that of Reloder 17, well within the 4350 burn speed band. This makes it ideal for traditional hunting cartridges such as 30-06 Spring. and 270 Win, as well as 6.5mm target loads and tactical applications where temperature stability is required.
Reloder 16 also features Alliant’s new de-coppering additive which helps to reduce copper build-up in the barrel.
This is achieved by adding small amounts of tin and bismuth into the propellant mix. Upon firing this combines with the traces of copper in the barrel and forms a brittle copper alloy that is swept out of the bore with each subsequent shot. This reduces the amount of copper build-up and essentially cleans as you shoot.
