Winchester 296 is a ball powder developed for large handgun loads. An ideal solution for loading 357 Magnum, 44 Magnum, and even 410-bore shotshell ammunition, its high loading density provides optimal velocity. Winchester 296 is also recommended for 410-bore AA loads.
I have gotten great results when used to reload 300BK OUT
Great for subsonic 300blk
Love this powder. I use it for my 220gr subsonic 300 blk loads. Powder meters great in my Dillon 550
I am 67 years old been using this forever in all my magnum hand guns and desert eagles meter fine in powder measures
Excellent results in 44 mag
Great powder . Very versatile. Highly recommended
AR15 .300 Blackout
I reload for my 300 Blackout very clean burning powder and accurate
great for .357, .41, and .44 magnum pistols
Selected this powder based on recommendations that it was good for .410 reloading. It was easy to establish, reliable, repeatable results.
does what it says in the box
I was rather surprised that I received an request to review Win 296 powder. 296 has kept .410 in the hands of American youth- teaching them to shoot for generations. It set the standard. Plenty of nice loads available for many components. 296 speaks for itself.
When I purchased my Super Blackhawk, the first powder I chose was WW296. After testing with a number of projectile weights it seemed a waste of time to try another powder as it was obvious the combination shot better than I could!
This is the only powder I have used in my 44 Magnum ever since.
Excellent for loading high velocity rounds in big bore revolvers such as .44 magnum, .460 magnum and .500 magnum. I am confident that it would also be well suited to .454 Casull and other strong calibers.
The best powder for heavy 44 Magnum loads with 300 grain bullets!!! LBT heat treated solids and max charges of 296 are a super penetrator for large dangerous game!
reloading with Winchester 296 ball
Works good for 357 mag, achieves expected 1200+ fps. Feeds well in my Hornady progressive press.
