Welcome to the

Hodgdon Shop

In 1947, Bruce and Amy Hodgdon, along with sons JB and Bob, launched the Hodgdon Powder Company, with the first surplus powder offering after World War II. Over the last 75 years, Hodgdon Powder Company has grown into the preeminent supplier of gunpowder and blackpowder substitutes to handloading and muzzleloading enthusiasts. Along the way, Hodgdon Powder Company also acquired the IMR®, Accurate Powder® and Ramshot® brands, as well as licensing the Winchester® Smokeless Propellants brand.
