Dark Sky Armory is proud to offer Shooters World 50 BMG Smokeless Powder in 1 lbs canisters. 50 BMG is a medium-slow burning, high density, double base, ball propellant most suitable for a .50 Browning cartridge. In addition to nitrocellulose double base powders contain also nitroglycerin (8 – 23 %) as an energetic component. These powders contain also a small percentage of stabilizers or other additives as the single base powders. Double base powders are of higher energetic value than single base powders and their ballistic performance is better.
Note*As with any propellant and load combination, a minor change to any of the components of the test load CAN result in a significant shift in ballistic performance. This shift can cause unintended high pressures, and result in injury or death. Therefore, Shooters World LLC, nor the manufacturer of this propellant take no responsibility for the intentional or unintentional misuse of this product. The charge weights and results noted within are not recommended, either as a starting or completed load. They are shown merely as an indication of potential performance in one test load, shot by CIP standards.
