Smokeless powder. The term is a retronym, coined following the introduction of curio and relic black-powder muzzle loading firearms, to differentiate them from the kinds of smokeless powder that were then also used in firearms. As a result, many propellants are used commercially in large quantities as explosives and pyrotechnics in industrial applications such as mining, quarrying and demolition; solid rockets and missiles; airbag inflators; marine flares; fireworks; signal ammunition; small arms ammunition and propulsion of internal combustion engine vehicles.

Hodgdon CFE223 Smokeless Powder 8 Lb is the propellant behind a new generation of high-performance, copper-free. This spherical propellant was developed for accuracy, metering, temperature stability, low muzzle flash, and clean burning. Designed to give top velocities in smaller capacity cases, this powder makes a superb propellant for today’s LR rifles and pistols.
