SKU: N/A Categories: , , Tags: , ,

SOCOM smokeless powder has
no reloading propellant equivalent.
It is faster in burn speed than
ACCURATE 1680® and slower
in burn speed than Winchester
296 or Hodgdon H110. The
propellant gas generation rate
is appropriate for .300 Blackout,
7.62×39, straight-walled rifle
cartridges, and especially .458
SOCOM, where rapid transformation from powder to gas is desired.
Of recent findings, SOCOM is quite adept as a SINGLE propellant for BOTH
.300 Blackout subsonic AND supersonic applications. It has lower residue than
1680 in subsonic applications, and outperforms 296 in supersonic applications.
Its performance with a 220 grain Sierra Match King for a subsonic load is perfect.
But where it really shines is with a 150-grain FMJ…or hunting bullet. Where
other propellants leave the .300 Blackout anemic at best with a 150 grain bullet,
SOCOM can be used to approach the velocity of a .30-30 Winchester with the
same barrel length! The energy level of a 150 grain bullet at 2150 fps from a 16”
barrel is quite impressive, given this small cartridge.
Due to its burn rate and density, there’s every indication is that this propellant will
perform well with the larger magnum pistol family. Where “1680” is a bit too slow
for the .500 S&W and like cartridges, the gas generation rate of SOCOM keeps
up with the needs of the expansion ratios of these large magnum pistol bores
and bullet sectional densities.
The Lovex brand does not carry this propellant. It is a proprietary burn speed
manufactured for Southern Ballistic Research, and canistered by Shooters
The density of SOCOM is approximately 0.99 grams/cc. It contains a level of
flash suppressant. Its spherical geometry assures highly consistent powder
drops, when making rounds on a progressive loader.
