BALL POWDER Propellant for Military Applications

Few defense companies can claim a pedigree as distinguished
as that of General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems. Quality propellants have been supplied to the armed forces of the United States and its allies since 1914. Today, General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems continues the legacy as a U.S. leader in propellant technology, currently offering over 120 types of propellants.

Over 95% of all U.S. military small arms ammunition are loaded with our propellants. In addition, General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems' propellants are qualified for use on all current U.S. military medium caliber rounds. Our propellants are also the choice for 60mm, 81mm and 120mm mortar systems. Innovative technologies, such as HDPC (High Density Propelling Charges), and propulsion systems for advanced large caliber tank, artillery and naval systems are available.
