Extra-Lite delivers less recoil, less cost and less headaches to shotshell reloaders transitioning to a lower load charge and features a density that allows the use of standard components (wads and cases). Extra-Lite also delivers pressure levels that guarantee complete combustion across a broad range of temperature ranges while remaining extremely clean burning. Made in the U.S.A. and delivers lot-to-lot consistency.

Incredibly Clean Burning

By Raymond K. on Jul 27, 2019
This powder is in league with Vectan A24 for sub ounce loads in the 12 gauge. Extremely efficient and full, clean burning. I've also used it in 1 oz. 1,250 FPS loads in Federal Gold Medal hulls. Barrel looked like I just cleaned it after 80 rounds. Incredible. Thanks to Alliant for coming up with this specialized powder. The "dust" many refer to appears to be a powdered Mica to aid flow without using graphite. I have seen it in other Alliant flake powders. Not an issue at all really. This one is a winner.

so far used 80 lbs. of Extra Lite in 12ga 7/8, 3/4, and 5/8 Oz. i switch from using Clays to Extra Lite two years ago, no other powder comes close in clean burning at 5000PSI
