The first powder in this new family is a fast-burning pistol powder. This fine-grained, small-flake pistol powder meters superbly, providing very precise loads in even small pistol cartridges like the .25 ACP
The second powder in this new family was designed to be an efficient, clean-burning, 12-gauge target powder. IMR Red also good for match competition loads and Cowboy reduced loads.
The third in this new family is slightly slower-burning than IMR Red, making it an ideal trap handicap powder and also for sporting Clays enthusiasts.
IMR Unequal combines small-sized flakes for uniform metering in all pistol applications and its burn speed accommodates a wide range of shotshell and pistol cartridges.
The slowest burn speed of the five new propellants, IMR Blue for heavy 12-gauge 2-¾-inch, 3-inch and 3-1/2-inch field loads.
