    Just got a deal on some reloading supplies. One item was an old 1 pound can of Hercules Green Dot powder. I am guessing that since Alliant bought out Hercules it is the same as Alliant green dot but I hate guessing when it comes to something like this. Any info would be appreciated.

    Green dot from Hercules is the same as Alliant.That powder has been around for a long time.When I started reloading that was my powder of choice,and that was over forty years ago.

    Alliant has cleaned up the "fillers" in Green Dot over the years, It is now, IMO, the best powder for 12 gauge and some hand-gun loads. We use to use 23 grains of Green Dot for 3 DR.EQ. Now it is down to 19.5

    I would call Alliant, with your newer components they can advise you on a powder drop.
