IMR® SMokeless Powders

IMR Smokeless Shotgun & Pistol Powders IMR Smokeless Shotgun & Pistol Powders

IMR Red

IMR 4227

IMR Red is one of a new IMR family of powders that have comparable burn speeds to competitor powders. This new IMR family uses new, modern technology to ensure the product is “green,” burns clean and, in most cases, results in more energy from each grain of powder. IMR powders are consistent in bulk densities from lot to lot, eliminating some of the variability inherent in other competitors. IMR Red is a 12-gauge target powder for light 7/8- to 1-1/8- oz. handicap trap loads. Will produce efficient low charge weights, mild muzzle report and minimal recoil. Great for dove and light field 12- gauge loads! Performs well in various lead pistol target loads, such as match competition loads and cowboy action reduced loads. For shotshell usage, powder densities are similar to competitor data and handloaders may use the same bushing charts. Most shotshell data is similar, but IMR recommends always consulting www.IMRReloading.com for the most accurate, up-to-date data. For pistol usage, pistol data is materially different from competitor data with lower charge weights and higher velocities at maximum pressures. IMR recommends always consulting www.IMRReloading.com for the most accurate, up-to-date data.

IMR Target

IMR 4227

IMR Target is one of a new IMR family of powders that have comparable burn speeds to competitor powders. This new IMR family uses new, modern technology to ensure the product is “green,” burns clean and, in most cases, results in more energy from each grain of powder. IMR powders are consistent in bulk densities from lot to lot, eliminating some of the variability inherent in other competitors. IMR Target is a fast-burning pistol powder yielding outstanding performance in 25 ACP, 38 Special and 45 ACP. It’s perfect for cowboy action target loads, where reduced recoil loads are needed. For pistol usage, pistol data is materially different from competitor data with lower charge weights and higher velocities at maximum pressures. IMR recommends always consulting www.IMRReloading.com for the most accurate, up-to-date data. Available in 1-LB, 4-LB and 8-LB Containers

IMR Green

IMR 4227

IMR Green is one of a new IMR family of powders that have comparable burn speeds to competitor powders. This new IMR family uses new, modern technology to ensure the product is “green,” burns clean and, in most cases, results in more energy from each grain of powder. IMR powders are consistent in bulk densities from lot to lot, eliminating some of the variability inherent in other competitors. IMR Green burns slightly slower than IMR RED, making it an ideal handicap trap powder and a favorite with sporting clays enthusiasts. This allows the shooter to reach maximum velocity with heavy 1- 1/8-oz. target loads. Accommodates loads from 7/8 to 1-1/8 -oz. 12-gauge loads. Produces excellent light 3⁄4-oz., 20- gauge target loads, especially in Remington STS and Winchester AA HS shells. For shotshell usage, powder densities are similar to competitor data and handloaders may use the same bushing charts. Most shotshell data is similar, but IMR recommends always consulting www.IMRReloading.com for the most accurate, up-to-date data. For pistol usage, pistol data is materially different from competitor data with lower charge weights and higher velocities at maximum pressures.

IMR Unequal

IMR 4227

IMR Unequal is one of a new IMR family of powders that have comparable burn speeds to competitor powders. This new IMR family uses new, modern technology to ensure the product is “green,” burns clean and, in most cases, results in more energy from each grain of powder. IMR powders are consistent in bulk densities from lot to lot, eliminating some of the variability inherent in other competitors. Unequaled in versatility, IMR Unequal has no equal in modern powders. Combines small-sized flakes for uniform metering in all pistol applications and a burn speed that accommodates a wide range of shotshell and pistol cartridges. Top performance in 12-, 16-, 20- and 28-gauge, from target to light field loads. Handles pistol cartridges from 32 ACP to the 44 Remington Magnum. For shotshell usage, powder densities are similar to competitor data and handloaders may use the same bushing charts. Most shotshell data is similar, but IMR recommends always consulting www.IMRReloading.com for the most accurate, up-to-date data. For pistol usage, pistol data is materially different from competitor data with lower charge weights and higher velocities at maximum pressures.

IMR Blue

IMR 4227

IMR Blue is one of a new IMR family of powders that have comparable burn speeds to competitor powders. This new IMR family uses new, modern technology to ensure the product is “green,” burns clean and, in most cases, results in more energy from each grain of powder. IMR powders are consistent in bulk densities from lot to lot, eliminating some of the variability inherent in other competitors. With the slowest burn speed of the new IMR family, IMR Blue is a true magnum propellant yielding outstanding performance in 12-gauge shotshells. Ideal burn speed for ”back fence games” where 1-1⁄4- and 1-3/8-oz. loads are the norm. Data for 10-gauge, 16-gauge and 20- gauge also available, providing true magnum velocities and performance. For shotshell usage, powder densities are similar to competitor data and handloaders may use the same bushing charts. Most shotshell data is similar, but IMR recommends always consulting www.IMRReloading.com for the most accurate, up-to-date data.

IMR 4227

IMR 4227

This is the Magnum Pistol Powder in the IMR lineup. If it says Magnum, IMR 4227 is the choice for true magnum velocities and performance. In rifles this powder delivers excellent velocity and accuracy in such cartridges as the 22 Hornet and 221 Fireball.

IMR 4198

IMR 4198

This fast burning rifle powder gives outstanding performance in cartridges like the 222 Remington, 221 Fireball, 45-70, and 450 Marlin. Varmint shooters with small-bore cartridges love it. Proven metering and necessary elements were added to make it extremely insensitive to hot/cold temperatures. IMR 4198 is outstanding in cartridges like the 222 Remington, 444 Marlin and 7.62 X 39.

IMR 3031

IMR 3031

A propellant with many uses, IMR 3031 has long been a favorite of 308 Match shooters using 168-grain match bullets. It is equally effective in small-capacity varmint cartridges from 223 Remington to 22-250 Remington, and it’s a great 30-30 Winchester powder.

IMR 8208 XBR

IMR 8208

IMR 8208 XBR The latest in the versatile IMR line of fine propellants, this accurate metering, super short grained extruded rifle powder was designed expressly for match, varmint, and AR sniper cartridges.  Ideally suited for cartridges like the 223 Remington/5.56mm, 308 Winchester/7.62mm NATO and the 6mm PPC, shooters will find IMR 8208 XBR totally insensitive to changes in temperature, while yielding max velocities and “tack driving” accuracy.  Clearly, the competitor’s “choice” and the Varmint Hunter’s “dream powder”.

IMR 4895

IMR 4895

Originally a military powder featured in the 30-06, IMR 4895 is extremely versatile. From the 17 Remington to the 243 Winchester to the 375 H&H Magnum, accuracy and performance are excellent. In addition, it is a longtime favorite of Match shooters.

IMR 4064®

IMR 4064

One of the most versatile propellant in the IMR line, used for 223 Remington, 22-250 Remington, 220 Swift, 6mm Remington, 243 Winchester Super Short Magnum, 308 Winchester, 338 Winchester Magnum, and the list goes on and on. Versatility with uniformity and accuracy.

IMR 4320

IMR 4320

Short granulation, easy metering, and perfect for the 223 Remington, 22-250 Remington, 250 Savage, and other medium burn rate cartridges. Long a top choice for the vintage 300 Savage cartridge as well.

IMR 4350

IMR 4350

The number one choice for the new short magnums, both Remington and Winchester versions. For magnums with light to medium bullet weights, IMR 4350 is the best choice.

IMR 4831

IMR 4831

Slightly slower in burn speed than IMR 4350, IMR 4831 gives top velocities and performance with heavier bullets in medium-sized magnums.

IMR 7828

IMR 7828

The BIG magnum powder. This slow burner gives real magnum performance to the large over-bored magnums, such as the 300 Remington Ultra Magnum, the 30-378 Weatherby Magnum, and the 7mm Remington Ultra Magnum. This powder is highly regarded by most magnum afficionados.

IMR 7828 SSC

IMR 7828 SSC

This magnum rifle powder has exactly the same burn rate as standard IMR 7828 and uses the same data. However, due to the super short kernels, metering is virtually as good as a spherical powder. This allows up to 4% more powder space in the case and in many loads yields more velocity than standard 7828. Such loads are marked with an asterisk in the data to show where standard 7828 will not fit.
