Alliant Promo Powder
Each bottle of Alliant Smokeless Powder is backed by one hundred years of manufacturing expertise and the most cutting-edge quality assurance technology available. To make sure that everything is the same, ballistics labs are always testing and analyzing chemical makeup, grain shape, grain size, and overall density.
Since Promo is denser than Alliant’s Red Dot, you can get the same amount of product in a smaller container while still achieving the same burn time. Constantly charging and measuring is a breeze. excellent not only for handgun loads but also for 12-gauge loads. We can put this to good use.
The lowest-priced American-made 12-gauge target powder While Promo and Red Dot both burn at the same rate, the latter is less dense and thus requires a larger bushing to achieve the same charge weight.
There is plenty of cheap trap, skeet, and sports clay.
It is easy to read the meters, and the rates are always the same.

Just started using promo for 1 oz trap loads. Started off using 18 grains for 16 yard trap, seems to work as good as the 700 X that I have been using but haven’t tried any other loads so far.

Alliant Promo is like the dirty little secret of reloading. Alliant doesn’t give much load data for it & it only comes in 8# kegs. It is also screaming cheap in an era when SURPLUS powder is almost as expensive as canister. I’m told that Promo is the result of Alliant’s QC testing and as such each batch/lot of Promo needs to have loads worked up as if it were a new powder to make sure your loads are still good.

This is almost the same as Red Dot powder without the Red Dot. It’s loaded charge weight for charge weight the same as Red Dot. The volume can be very slightly different. I find it much cheaper than Red Dot and just as versatile. I load 12ga, 20ga, 38, snubby 357 loads, 9mm, 380, 45 acp, 45 Colt and others all with Red Dot/promo with excellent results.

I use this powder in my 12 ga. trap loads for the 16 yard line and it is affordable and works well the only bad thing is every keg weighs different and has to be weighed to make sure you have the right charge weight.
