The company says the improved Red Dot powder burns “significantly cleaner and offers better flow characteristics.” This is all while keeping the same clay-crushing performance that scattergun shooters have trusted since 1932. Red Dot is optimized for 12-gauge target loads, and offers Alliant Powder’s legendary lot-to-lot consistency.
Enhanced Green Dot is optimized for handicap trap loads―yet versatile enough for a variety of target and field applications. It also has Alliant Powder’s famous lot-to-lot consistency. The improved formulation burns clean, with precise burn rates that produce dense, uniform patterns, as well as reducing felt recoil.
“Alliant Powder offers shooters even more consistent and cleaner-burning performance with the release of these improved products,” said Brian Anderson, senior marketing manager for Alliant Powder. He added, “The original high-performance clay target powders just got even better.”

- Red Dot or Green Dot one-pound container ― $25
