Four-page pamphlet advertising Red Dot brand sporting powder manufactured and sold by the Hercules Powder Company. The pamphlet is specifically addressed to participants in the annual Amateur Trapshooting Association (A.T.A.) classic. Notably, the pamphlet was published near the end of World War II and includes several references to the transition from wart to peacetime.
