Alliant Powder – Promo 8lbs
Product Overview: Alliant promo powder
Every container of Alliant promo powder (Smokeless) is backed by a century of manufacturing experience and the most exacting quality control procedures in the industry. Chemical composition, grain shape and size, and overall density are constantly checked and tested in a ballistics lab to ensure consistency.
Offered by Alliant, Promo has the same burn speed as Red Dot, but is more dense, thus requiring a smaller bushing to obtain the same charge weight. It meters easily and charges consistently. Ideal for use in 12 gauge loads, but can also be used in some handgun loads.
Warnings from the Manufacturer:
- Do not exceed the loads displayed in the reloaders guide.
- Never mix any two powders regardless of type, brand, or source.
- Never substitute any smokeless powder for Black Powder or any Black Powder substitute.

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.
