Introduction from ADI Reloading Powders:
Welcome to the 9th edition of ADI Powders Handloaders' Guide. This is the biggest issue yet with new loads, new stories and more action! This year's guide is once again packed with essential reloading data and great articles about the ADI 308 Brass, Lithgow Arms debut centrefire rifle and ADI's new propellant factory in Mulwala.
ADI have had some great feedback on the new format, and the decision to supply figures for the popular commercially available bullets by brand name, rather than simply by bullet weight, has proven very popular with the reloading community. The new format introduces a number of changes to make the guide easier to use, as well as more interesting to browse through.
You’ll notice that the guide is now in the format of a glossy magazine. This change makes it possible for ADI to include articles on reloading, as well as reviews of new powders and reloading kit. The addition of a modest cover price also makes it possible for ADI to publish the guide annually, without adding to the price of their powders.
ADI's reloading data is developed in cooperation with the Hodgdon Powder Company, with which ADI have celebrated a remarkable 25-year plus partnership with. Looking closer at the data, you will notice that ADI now supply figures for popular commercially available bullets by brand name, rather that simply by bullet weight.
This change brings the ADI guide in step with the way Hodgdon publishes its data, and makes it easier for you to choose a powder that will give you the desired performance for your chosen bullet brand and weight.
ADI are proud to introduce Bench Mark 8208, already reverently referred to as the ‘Cinderella Powder’ in the US, to their range.
This powder meters with the consistency of a ball powder and drives light varmint bullets at higher velocities, while maintaining rock solid performance in varying environments. It’s versatile as well, with good loads available up to the 458 Winchester Magnum. On behalf of the ADI team, thank you for using ADI's proudly Australian-made powders. Enjoy the sport, and be safe out there.
