IMR® SMokeless Shotgun/Handgun 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 recommends always consulting www.IMRReloading.com for the most accurate, up-to-date data. Available in 14-OZ, 4-LB and 8-LB Containers

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 Blue</strong>

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. For pistol usage, pistol data is materially different from competitor data with lower charge weights and higher velocities at maximum pressures.
