Gun Powders




Drago is the latest Cheddite powder, and was developed to meet the expectations of an increasingly demanding market.

It’s great versatility, and the brilliance of its ballistic characteristics, make it one of the best powders on the hunting and shooting cartridge market. As for all the other powders, empty cases and wads, the loading of these components in the original Cheddite loading also guarantees a constant and continuous monitoring of their quality and conformity to the adopted specifications.


Aquila is the powder that made Cheddite famous in the field of hunting. Aquila, which has recently been re-elaborated using the most modern technology, keeps alive the traditions of generations of hunters, who have learned to know and appreciate it.

Aquila is now also available for the shooting market and in all lead-shot dosages, in industrial packaging and in 1 kg. boxes for those manual loading enthusiasts.



CH6, the new powder created from research by CHEDDITE ballistics experts to guarantee special resistance to changes in climate, ensures an eective shot even in the most extreme temperatures and humidity. The special chemical composition based on nitrocellulose in lamellar form, with the correct property of varied dimension, enables the optimisation of the combustion process for various types of cartridges. CH6 retains the traditional characteristics of the renowned JK6 powder, which has given success to so many hunters, optimising its performance thanks to the technical innovations made.


Granular is one of Cheddite’s best known powders. It springs from our vast experience in the sector, and recent modifications, with a new formula which has revised the chemical and morphological appearance, have elevated the product to the high quality level that is necessary to satisfy the different requirements of the loading market. The granular morphologic appearance combined with the physicochemical properties ensure that the cartridges have very consistent ballistic results.


The Granular S powder borns from our big experience in Hunting and Target Shooting propellants, and now with a new formula, which revisits the chemistry and morphology, is proposed as a solution to the needs of the metal ammunitions reloading for pistols and revolvers.

The above data are indicative only and refer to the average of the loading components on the market today (empty case ,primer). In any case, taking into account the variables affecting ballistics of a cartridge, during the various stages of loading, that can easily lead its values to an extreme dangerous level to people, we accept no responsibility for any use of material and / or information provided by us and used outside of our direct control.
