Question:  Your website says your powder is 13.8% more accurate. More accurate than what?

Answer:    Our accuracy tests were done against what we felt was probably the most accurate and consistent rounds available, Match grade cartridge, US      military DODIC A483. Tested in .45 ACP. These were 1000 round tests, using 3 different barrels each. Test firing was done from an anchored Ransom Rest and fired remotely. Groupings were all measured and the result showed a 13.8% tighter group overall. Weapon used was an M1911A1.

Question:  On the video, it shows alternating shots of ammunition using Stealth powder and something else. What were you comparing to?

Answer: To continue with consistency, we again used the match grade US Military DODIC A483 cartridge.

****************************************

Question: Your website mentions less jams, please elaborate.

Answer: Tests done by an independent laboratory were of 1000 rounds of each variety of ammunition were fired through 3 different test barrels. There was one jam (stovepipe) in 1000 rounds with Stealth Powder. There were a total of 13 malfunctions recorded out of 1000 rounds of DODIC A483 ammunition. Weapon used was a M1911A1.

Question: Will this powder be available in Canada?

Answer: We have a partner company in Canada that will be the exclusive distributor for Canada. Our powder will be available in Canada approximately the same time that it is available in the USA. Anticipating early to mid-Summer, 2015. The company that will be distributing Stealth Gunpowder in Canada can be found at www.advantageammo.com. Their website is currently under construction.

Question: You claim the powder to be flashless, but I still see a little light on your powder?

Answer: Flashless gunpowder is defined as an absence of a fireball at the end of the barrel, unlike conventional powder. The small bit of light that you see from our powder, we found from slow motion photography, is mostly a slight illumination of the smoke from last of the primer burn. Our powder burns a faint violet purple. The light we see on slow motion photography shows a yellow illumination deep in the barrel, which we believe to be the primer.  

***************************************

Question: On the video, did you just load less powder into your "Stealth cartridges" to achieve the lack of flash?

Answer: Our Stealth powder cartridges were filled to have an exact FPS and Max pressure to the DODIC A483 cartridges, in order to have a direct head to head comparison.

***************************************

Question: Are samples going to be available?

Answer: We will have available 1 oz. canisters for engineering samples. These will be coming available approximately mid-April, 2015. These will be intended for ammunition manufacturers and commercial reloaders to do their testing of our product.

Question: Will you publish load data?

Answer: Data will be published online via our website when ready.

***************************************

Question: Will you publish ballistic data?

Answer: Yes, this will be published online via our website. It will contain velocity, pressure, and fps information, minimum and maximum load data.

***************************************

Question: Is this powder tuned by barrel length?

Answer: There is some tuning of the powder to barrel length, but we mostly achieve the flashless appearance by the chemical makeup of the powder, not by timing the powder burn rate. Our chemistry is very different from standard smokeless powder. The magic is in the chemistry.

***************************************

Question: When is the powder going to be available?

Answer: Early to Mid-summer 2016

****************************************

Question: How was the decreased reacquisition time calculated?

Answer: Decreased reacquisition time in low light is due to the eyes not having to readjust after seeing the muzzle flash coming from the barrel.  15 professional shooters, each shooting 3 sessions per powder type, firing 6 rounds each per session,  all  done while shooting in low light.  Each shooter was timed, and were instructed to fire as accurately and as fast as possible.  All times in the shooting tests were tallied and scored for both the conventional powder and Stealth powder.  Average accurate firing time using Stealth Gunpowder was 39% faster.

***************************************

Question: Is Accuracy correct?

Answer: Ransom rest and groupings with 1,000 rounds each in 3 different barrels used.  Testing done by Independent Labs.
