Got a faxed warning from Ellett Bros. the other day, from Alliant, regarding a warning about using Blue Dot powder in .357 with 125 gr. jacketed, and ANY use in .41 Remington Magnum...
DATE: July 25, 2008
Alliant PowderŪ periodically reviews and tests their published reloading data to verify that recommended recipes have not changed over time. During the latest review Alliant Powder discovered that Alliant Powder?s Blue DotŪ should not be used in the following applications:
Blue DotŪ should NOT be used in the 357 Magnum load using the 125 grain projectile (Blue DotŪ recipes with heavier bullet weights as specified in Alliant Powders Reloading Guide are acceptable for use).
Blue DotŪ should NOT be used in the 41 Magnum cartridge (all bullet weights).
Use of Blue DotŪ in the above cases may cause a high pressure situation that could cause property damage and serious personal injury.
