Alliant steel powder
First launched in 1998 was Alliant Steel. The performance bar for steel shot waterfowl loads was raised by Steel. It is a slow burn rate powder – even a bit slower than the traditionally preferred steel shooting charger Blue Dot. This slow rate of burning is the most consistent when heavy loads are used. Steel has in recent years found a new application for Hevi-shot, ITX and other non-toxic hunting loads at higher performance. Like Unique, Steel is fluffy and Alliant recommends that it is not scaled through covers.

Maison Dominguez –
I have used this powder for many years, in many different steel shot load configurations, in both 12ga and 20ga with great success. I don’t use anything else any more.
Brodie Winters –
STEEL gives the highest velocities possible with magnum 12 gauge shells. The smell of this powder in the morning is unbelievably delicious.
Lewis Berger –
I have used this powder since it came out. It gives higher velocities than blue dot or the IMR powders. It seems to be more consistent in the often sub-zero temps in late season. When used with BPI shot and wads it is a lethal combo for any waterfowl try it.
