Ballistic tests reveal that Shooters World Blackout D063-02 Smokeless Gun Powder is suitable for pistol and rifle cartridges with a nearly straight-walled wall.
The propellant gas production rate is suitable for cartridges such as the.300 Blackout, 7.62×39,.30-30,.22 Hornet, and many other lever-action handgun and rifle cartridges that require rapid transition from powder to gas. It burns at a comparable rate to Accurate 1680.
This propellant is designed to work with a wide range of heavy rounds in the.300 Blackout subsonic caliber. The combination of charge weight, geometry, and chemistry, which is especially ideal for 200+ grain bullets, ensures cycling in AR platforms. Despite being optimized for heavier projectiles, the.300 Blackout can also fire smaller supersonic bullets. Loaders, on the other hand, have better results with supersonic projectiles when using SOCOM. It’s a spherical propellant that reliably meters through charge plates and flows nicely in a high-speed loader. There is an amount of flash suppression built into the propellant.
Another advantage to Shooters World propellants is the long track record of these propellants. The Shooter’s World manufacturer has been making propellants since 1920. Many of these propellants are sold throughout Europe under the Lovex brand. The density of Blackout is approximately 1 gram/cc. It contains a level of flash suppressant. Its spherical geometry assures highly consistent powder drops when making rounds on a progressive loader. Under the Lovex brand, this propellant is referred to as D063.
