Winchester Smokeless Propellants – The Winchester Story
The Winchester® Smokeless Propellants handloaders know today can trace its origin back to 1892, when Franklin Olin and several other investors founded the Equitable Powder Company of East Alton, Illinois. In 1898, Olin then founded the Western Cartridge Company to sell ammunition, providing another outlet for his Equitable Powder Company’s powder. Three decades later in 1931, Western Cartridge bought the bankrupt Winchester Repeating Arms Company. With this acquisition, Western was renamed Winchester-Western.
In 1929, Western Cartridge Company hired Dr. Fredrich Olsen, who soon received U.S. Patent #2,027,114, issued to Western Cartridge as “Manufacture of Smokeless Powders.” Western Cartridge Company then commercially introduced BALL POWDER® smokeless propellant.
