Winchester Smokeless Propellants – The Winchester Story

Winchester® Smokeless Propellants may be traced back to 1892, when Franklin Olin and several other partners established the Equitable Powder Company in East Alton, Illinois.

In 1898, Olin established the Western Cartridge Company to market ammunition, giving his Equitable Powder Company another outlet for its powder.

In 1931, Western Cartridge purchased the bankrupt Winchester Repeating Arms Company. Western was renamed Winchester-Western as a result of this transaction.

Dr. Fredrich Olsen was engaged by Western Cartridge Company in 1929, and he quickly earned U.S. Patent #2,027,114, which was issued to Western Cartridge as “Manufacture of Smokeless Powders.” Western Cartridge Company then commercialized the smokeless propellant BALL POWDER®.

Powders, Primers, and Reloading Supplies by Winchester,  Winchester is one of the most well-known brand names in the world. Since 1866, the term has grown to symbolize a variety of things to different people.

Most people associate it with ammo and the “Gun that Won the West.” Winchester manufactures hand tools, cutlery, fishing tackle, and, of course, ammunition and firearms.

Winchester’s picturesque artwork and branding have formed a vision of what a hunting tradition should be. The legend of the Winchester name and trademark has reflected a long and responsible tradition of commitment and pride in creating high-quality products for over 140 years.

Olin Corporation continues to produce Winchester ammunition in a variety of lines, including Super-X, Supreme and Supreme Elite shotshells, and Cowboy Loads revolver cartridges.

Winchester provides the highest quality ammunition components to reloaders. Every component is designed to meet or exceed the industry’s most stringent quality control and performance standards.

Winchester Bullets Winchester stocks a wide range of component bullets for centerfire rifle and handgun ammunition. Bullets are custom-designed and manufactured to exact specifications in order to provide specified on-target performance characteristics.

These qualities differ depending on the design of the bullet. Cases Shell cases for handguns and rifles are precision-engineered to provide smooth feeding and positive chambering.

There are unprimed rifle shell cases as well as primed and unprimed handgun shell cases available. W209 Muzzleloader Muzzleloading Primers are perfect for muzzleloading in-line. Hodgdon currently carries Powder Winchester Smokeless Powder.

Primers All weather primers are non-corrosive and provide fast, consistent ignition in any shooting environment. Winchester works hard to ensure that all primers are dependable, fast, and exact.

Primers are continually and carefully tested in testing facilities for consistency and sensitivity at temperatures and situations much beyond the range of normal usage.

promises improved sensitivity for more positive firing in all guns, carefully-controlled weights of primer mixes, consistency in size and quality, exact measurements and tolerances for anvil heights, and stability in extremes of temperatures and humidity.

Wads/Shots Wads are rarely given the same level of scrutiny as other components by reloaders. The result is frequently poor performance, which is solely due to the wad.

Inslug loads benefit from good gas pressure sealing provided by paper cup and fiber wads. Plastic shot cups shield buckshot pellets and improve pattern performance in new low recoil buck shot loads.

And, of course, reloading would be incomplete without shot. Uniform, cooled lead shot results in uniform shot patterns and greater penetration. Strict quality control throughout the manufacturing process ensures the best performance possible.
