Powder-in-Tube (PIT) Nb3Sn conductors have be fabricated. In this paper, we determine the effect of the nanoscale alumina on strengthening the tin through milling as a function of time to better match the mechanical properties of the Matrix NbTa. A closer match of the tin cores to the NbTa matrix is expected to help in uniform processing to achieve concentric tin cores. Characterization of the microstructure and non-Cu critical current density with applied field is presented.
