Ramshot Smokeless Powder is newly manufactured, meaning it hasn’t been pulled from loaded ammunition and it’s not military surplus powder. Every powder in the Ramshot family is double-based and spherical shaped. Ramshot SILHOUETTE is the choice for competitive shooters in IPSC, IDPA and USPSA. A double-base high performance powder, it is an excellent choice for 9mm, 38 Super, 40 S&W and 45 ACP. It has a low flash signature, high velocity, and clean burning properties which also make it the perfect choice for indoor ranges and law enforcement applications.
