Ramshot True-Blue Smokeless Gun Powder
Ramshot Smokeless Powder is newly manufactured, meaning it hasn’t been pulled from loaded ammunition and it’s not military surplus powder. Every powder in the Ramshot family is double-based and spherical shaped.
Ramshot TRUE BLUE is the perfect powder for classic calibers such as the 38 Special, 44 Special, and 45 Long Colt. Its a double-base, spherical powder with great metering properties that make it an ideal choice for consistent results using high volume, progressive reloading equipment. It works well with cast bullets and is also an excellent choice for 9mm law enforcement rounds

Ramshot True Blue
This is a very fine sphereical powder. This powder fits very densely into a case. With some extruded or large stick pistol powders only ~8 grains fills the case completely to the top. This one, you can go past 11 grains easily. Its not the most dense powder, but its very close. This is good and bad. Its good because if super high velocity with light bullets is your thing, you can fit maximum powder in the case with the small bullet to make this work. Its bad because you can make a mistake, put too much powder in the case, and cause unsafe pressures.
Ramshot True Blue has low muzzle flash, fireballs do not come out of the barrel. This is favorable to most.
This powder yields above average accuracy in our vast tests. One reason is it is very easy to quickly load consistent charge weights without checking each one, due to its ease of metering.
There is a large amount of load data for this powder. Ramshot even lists +P loads for it. There is hardly any data available for less than 115 grain bullets, and that is the weakness. We took guesses and worked up for loads below 115 grain bullets to learn about it. This is pretty easy since the load data for True Blue and Silhouette are very similar. True Blue generally uses slightly more powder to get same result as Silhouette.
We find that True Blue is not an “easy” powder to attain in periods of shortages. We looked weekly, and could not even find 1 lb of it, for literally years. True Blue is probably the most underrated, underused powder in the world of 9 MM. It does it all, it has almost no real weakness, and its in the spectrum of medium to low cost choices.
To us? Ramshot True Blue is simply, easily, one of the best powders for 9MM you can buy in the known Universe. It can do plinking, it can do accuracy, it can do low charge weight plate shooting, it can do 9 MM Major.
