Product Overview: Hodgdon Longshot
LONGSHOT POWDER is the most versatile shotshell heavy field propellant Hodgdon has ever produced. Great loads in 10 ga., 12 ga., 16 ga., 20 ga., and 28 ga. are shown in Hodgdon’s Reloading Data. hodgdon longshot provides true magnum velocities with superb patterns. In addition, longshot powder load data is the best choice for those competitors shooting games such as “Buddy”, “Annie Oakleys” and more. LONGSHOT is the high velocity pistol choice in 38 Super, 40 S&W, and 357 SIG at lower than usual operating pressures.
Warning About Smokeless Powder:
- Do not exceed the loads displayed in the reloaders guide.
- Never mix any two powders regardless of type, brand, or source.
- Never substitute any smokeless powder for Black Powder or any Black Powder substitute.
Skeet Shooter From Houston –
Longshot is a dense powder, which is helpful in achieving a good “fit” in the 28 ga AAHS hull with a Claybuster wad. This is also true for the 20 ga AAHS hull, where full 7/8 oz of #9 shot can be loaded with the Claybuster CB 1078 wad. With other popular 20 ga powders it will be difficult to fit in a full 7/8 oz of shot in the Win hull without resorting to an RXP wad – which is basically unavailable today. Additionally, Longshot produces relatively low pressure, helpful to skeet shooters who watch the pressure for tubed guns.

I use this powder to load 357sig with 125gr bullets. Velocities are great but it does come with quite a large muzzle flash.
