Bruce Hodgdon was a Navy veteran and experienced reloader when he heard that the U.S. Military planned to destroy thousands of unnecessary barrels of powder after WWII. While he was not sure of a commercial market for surplus powder, he took a risk and bought 50,000 lbs of surplus powder (with leverage for his life insurance policy). This was the beginning of a company, B. E. Hodgdon, Incorporated, stored in a box car and mainly distributed with the family car.
Hodgdon is respected as an innovator in the industry and is still developing newer and better non-smoking powder and substitutes for black powder. Pyrodex was launched in 1972 and is very popular year after year with muzzleloaders. Varget powder is designed to be easily measured and has the fast-enthusiasm power required by 223 shooters. TiteGroup powder is a great choice for today’s pistol refloaders with clean burning, a light burning report and uniform ballistics.
IMR Powder Company was acquired by Hodgdon in 2003 and by GOEX in 2009. Hodgdon Black Powder is one of the largest manufacturers and distributors of gunpowder (smokeless powder, black powder, and black powder substitutes) in the world, together with the Hodgdon family of product lines.

As the name implies, this new generation Extreme extruded rifle propellant is a clean-burning powder designed expressly for the 50 caliber BMG cartridge. Because it shares the same technology as VARGET, H50BMG displays a high degree of thermal stability in temperature extremes. Tests have conclusively proven that H50BMG yields very low extreme spreads in velocity and pressure. All this translates into small groups at extended ranges!
