    Blue Dot warning!!!

    Be aware if you use Alliant blue dot powder

    Safety Notice

    Alliant Powder periodically reviews and tests their published reloading data to verify that our recommended recipes have not changed over time.

    During the latest review Alliant Powder discovered that Alliant Powder's Blue Dot® should not be used in the following applications:

    * Blue Dot® should NOT be used in the 357 Magnum load using the 125 grain projectile (Blue Dot® recipes with heavier bullet weights as specified in Alliant Powders Reloading Guide are acceptable for use).
    * Blue Dot® should NOT be used in the 41 Magnum cartridge (all bullet weights).

    Use of Blue Dot® in the above cases may cause a high pressure situation that could cause property damage and serious personal injury.

    We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause and appreciate your understanding and cooperation in this matter.

    Thanks for the update....I quit using Bluedot because it is so dirty. It performed well, but left some much residue that the mess wasn't worth it.

    I quit using Bluedot years ago and switched to W296. The flash and the loud report from my 4" .357 Mag. was just too much. W296 give the results you want without the negatives you get from Bluedot.

    I only use Blue Dot in 9mm. It works fine with that caliber.
