Buffalo Rifle propellant has a burn rate optimized for straight walled rifle cartridges, as well as reduced recoil/reduced energy loads in virtually all rifle applications. Chambers where the bullet diameter is virtually the same as the internal case diameter, such as .38-55 Winchester, .45-70 Gov’t and numerous Schuetzen calibers, will benefit from Buffalo Rifle.
Whether the loader desires to shoot cast lead or standard jacketed bullets, this propellant can greatly expand the utility of a hunting rifle. Now, a .30-06 can be used for plinking with the kids! Or a .243 for rabbit hunting! Safe, reduced loads can be economically loaded and enjoyed by the whole family. The surface of this propellant holds no deterrent or burn rate modifier. Therefore, it ignites quite consistently with low loading densities in standard rifle loads. This same ignition characteristic aids accuracy when used with cast lead bullets and long throated chambers.
Despite Buffalo Rifle being an extruded propellant, it provides good flow characteristics through a volumetric powder dump. The grain is narrow, and cut short. While some reloaders insist on weighing each powder charge, that extra time is generally not necessary when loading this propellant.
