Rifle gunpowder is specially engineered to take advantage of the large case capacity and long barrels of your long guns. Unlike pistol powders, rifle powders are often "single-base" and use nitrocellulose instead of a combination of nitrocellulose and nitroglycerin. Widener's carries rifle powder for sale from big brands like Hodgdon, Alliant, IMR, Vihtavuori, Ramshot, and Accurate Powder at some of the best prices out there.
The slower-burning nature of rifle powder generates high velocities without elevating chamber pressures to dangerous levels.
The powders shown here are all of the smokeless variety, also known simply as propellant powder.
