Every year it seems, the powder companies crank out more and more new powder types. Why? Looking at the well known IMR and Alliant lines for instance, you can pretty much cover the spectrum of need with Bullseye, Red Dot, 2400, 4198, 4895, and 4981. That's 6 powders to cover everything from fast small pistols through shotguns to slow magnum rifles (ignoring for now .50 bmg). And they're all fantastic powders, well proven. What's the point of making new ones beyond that?
