How is it that this miraculous "EC" powder is marketed by both duPont and Hercules?

DuPont purchased Laflin & Rand in 1902, and American “E.C.” & “Schultze” Powder Company in 1903. “New E.C. Improved” and “New Schultze” were introduced in 1906 as DuPont products.
DuPont began marketing “Ballistite” in 1909 produced under license from Nobel’s Explosive Co.
In 1912 under the Sherman Antitrust Act, Laflin & Rand was dissolved and DuPont was split into DuPont Powder Co. (which retained DuPont Bulk, Ballistite, Empire and “Schultze” and was later DuPont American Industries), Hercules Powder Co. (which retained “Infallible” and “E.C.”) and Atlas Powder Co.

Bro. Chichay you (and Tron) are such the cynics ;)

How about "Ballistite" - The Highest Velocity - Lowest Barrel pressures with The Lightest Recoil
"Ballistite" Banned!
