This spherical powder is a versatile shotshell propellant for heavy field loads, providing true magnum velocities with superb patterns.
Great loads in 28-, 20-, 16- and 12-gauge are shown in Hodgdon’s Reloading Data Center. In addition, LONGSHOT is the best choice for those competitors shooting games such as "Buddy", "Annie Oakley" and more.
LONGSHOT is the high velocity pistol choice in 38 Super, 40 S&W, and 357 SIG at lower-than-usual operating pressures.
Available in 1 lb., 4 lb. and 8 lb. containers.

This powder ought to be called Screaming Eagle I tried it in my Springfield XD 40 S&W using a 155gr. LSWC. I laddered the loads from Start Load to MAX Load in .02 grain increments. I could tell quickly this was going to be a great powder in 40 S&W the loads are fast , hot and loud which I like but it is really more than I need to shoot holes in paper but a lot of fun. Even at Max I had no signs of pressure issues which I was kind of expecting but there just was none. It meters accurately and smoothly in my Lee powder measures with no bridging. This powder I believe give's you every ounce of performance there is available in 40 S&W, if you want a hot ,fast load in 40 S&W try this powder it is the BOMB!!!!!!

In my Glock 20 in 10mm with 200 thru 220 grain bullets Long Shot is my powder for full 10mm Auto loads. Has low flash additives a great powder for hunting loads in 10mm Auto.

Hodgdon Longshot Powder
Posted by Scott Warn on May 2nd 2022
IMO the best powder made for Sporting Clays loads where speed and payload are a real benefit, with the correct hull and wad 7/8 ounce loads in 28 Gauge at 1250 to 1300 fps are easy to produce. As a result you get smaller boxes that allow carrying 100 rounds in pockets or pouch and a lighter shotgun to carry. I'll also note that Longshot and the 40 S&W is a perfect combination, it allows loading 165 grain bullets at near Magnum velocity. When you have a load that produces 1150 fps with a 165 grain bullet it's is not even close to being "Short and Weak". The result is loads that approach the power of a full house 10mm in the shorter, and easier to find, 40 S&W case. One issue currently is the limit on the number of containers one can purchase. With that 5 container limit an order for just 5 results in a burden of roughly 12 dollars per pound for Hazmat and shipping. Hodgdon should either up the number limit for 1 lbs. containers or simply not sell any container under 4 lbs.
Longshot gun powder

I have been reloading for a long time. Many calipers, many different powders and I have found Longshot to be the best for high velocity/low pressure. I would be glad to recommend Longshot gun powder.
