RS12 – Reload Swiss expands product assortment with new pistol powder

August 2014

RS12 is the new pistol powder from Reload Swiss RS.

The new RS12 is now the fastest powder available under Nitrochemie Wimmis AG's new brand for high performance propellent powders. It will go on the market in late summer.

RS12 is a porous, extruded, nitrocellulose-based one-hole powder. With an explosion heat of approximately 4050 joules per gram, it is ideal as a fast powder for many pistol and smaller revolver calibres. It thus complements the already available RS20 for applications in which the latter does not deliver satisfactory results in terms of unburned residues. Common loading applications for loads using RS12 include such calibres as .38 Special, .40S&W, .45ACP and 9mm Luger.

RS12 will be available in 500-gram cans or four-kilogram canisters. When stored properly, the powder can be used safely for up to ten years.
