In 1952 Hodgdon became the first company to offer spherical powder
and by I960--instead of only military surplus powder--they began offering newly manufactured powders.
"Silberline chose China as its source for spherical powder
not because of the price but because of its quality and technology," Scheller said.
Throwing 50 grains of H380--a spherical powder
suitable for a broad range of cartridges--an astounding 98 fell dead on the money.
"Target was designed to do what Titegroup, a spherical powder
, would do--but in our extruded, flake-type, IMR line of powders," Hodgdon's Ron Reiber told me.
In 1947, Hodgdon acquired 80 tons of spherical powder
from disassembled .303 British cartridges and later salvaged powder from Oerlikon 20mm cannon cartridges, which became known as 4831.
7) showed a typical splat-like morphology with the presence of few spherical powder
particles, microstructure of coating seems uneven.
Hodgdon is introducing their new CFE Pistol powder, a spherical powder
that measures beautifully.
During the milling, the scrap is laminated, micro-forged, cracked continuously, and then finally formed into a spherical shape powder; The size and shape of the spherical powder
produced depend on the milling time.
If you want to dispense uniform charges of powder with a measure, use a ball or spherical powder
, or at least use an extruded powder with a relatively fine grain.
MQP-S-9-8 is a neodymium-iron-boron (NdFeB) rare-earth magnetic alloy that comes in a spherical powder
The next generation of powder was a spherical powder
. Dense fired films were achieved from the mono-sized particles.
The only cautionary point about these 1-5/8-ouncers for the standard 12 is that there is some potential for spherical powder
migration due to fine powder particles and the cylindrical nature of the cases.
