Product Overview

Hodgdon Powder offers the largest selection of quality smokeless propellants for any reloading application.

Previously an IMR powder now offered in the Hodgdon label, Trail Boss was designed specifically for low velocity lead bullets suitable for Cowboy Action shooting. It is primarily a pistol powder but has some application in rifles. It is based on a whole new technology that allows very high loading density, good flow through powder measures, stability in severe temperature variation, and, most importantly, additional safety to the handloader.

Important Information:

  • Do not exceed the loads displayed in the reloaders guide.
  • Never mix any two powders regardless of type, brand, or source.
  • Never substitute any smokeless powder for Black Powder or any Black Powder substitute.

    I use Trail Boss in my 38 special rounds for Cowboy Action Shooting. I also use it with 230grn 45 acp rounds. It’s safer due to the amount of space it takes up in the case, cutting down the chance for double powder loads.

    I have used this powder in 9mm , .357, 44mag. 45acp, 45 colt it is very consistent. It’s nothing but fun for low presser low velocity loads. You can also load it up for a little more snap. The only problem is getting this powder. It melters well and is impossible to double charge.

  3. Delmar

    Trailboss is one of my favorite powders. If I had to pick just one powder to use it would be Trailboss.

  4. Kathrine

    works great in 45 long colt and in 50/70 , sure wish you start producing again,

    I use this powder in 38 special and it works great in .45 acp. But it only works with cast bullets. I had a friend who used Bullseye in his.45 and accidentally double-charged one case. Needless to say he blew up his gun. So he discovered Trail Boss and recommended it to me. The powder is “bulky” and leaves only enough room for the cast bullet, so there is NO chance of a double charge. Accuracy is excellent and recoil in the.45 acp is mild and comfortable.

    works well with 325 gr fn

    I love this powder for my 308 subsonic loads. It is bulky and fills the case more than most powders when trying to get a subsonic load. Hope to see it again soon

    I love this powder for my 308 subsonic loads. It is bulky and fills the case more than most powders when trying to get a subsonic load. Hope to see it again soon.

    I absolutely love this powder for reduced loads and easy shooting with cast bullets in 38 Special and 30-30 Winchester with cast,gas checked bullets! The cast bullets in the 30-30 probably don’t even need the gas checks but I use them for other loads also. I’ve loaded hundreds of rounds with Trailboss and will always keep some around from now on! I used these loads to teach my grandson to shoot the 38 and 30-30 with no recoil and he loves it! This stuff should be on everyone’s reloading bench!!

    I love this stuff for good ol fashion fun

    I would buy this product again and again.

    I have a friend who damaged his 1911 with a double charge of Bullseye. He switched to Trail Boss and recommended that I switch too. We use 5.0-5.1 grains of Trail Boss with a 185 grain lead bullet in the 45 acp case. The powder is very bulky and nearly fills the case without a compressed charge. The load is very accurate and low recoil.

    I love it use on my 38 special.

  13. jack

    Had heard about it for years and found it available. Reloaded a bunch of .38 rounds with it. Found it a simple joy to use and shoot.

  14. ken

    Great for my 45 acp. Will push a 200gr at over 800fps. What more can you ask out of a 45? Nice load no danger of double changing the case. Fills it almost 3/4 of the way up. Meters good. What’s not to like about it.
