Vihtavuori n150 Overview
Vihtavuori Smokeless Powders are credited with uniform and superb quality based on full control of the whole production chain beginning from the production of nitrocellulose to the bottling of the end product. These strict quality acceptance limits have helped reloaders and cartridge manufacturers to achieve similar loads regardless of the production lot for more than 85 years. It is easy to see why Vihtavuori Smokeless Powders have achieved a strong position among top class shooters around the world.
The N100 series powders are single base powders used mainly in rifle calibers. Vihtavuori’s N150 multipurpose rifle powder is one of their most popular reloading products. It is commonly used with heavier bullets in accuracy loads and hunting loads in cartridges with middle case volumes, like the .30-06 Springfield, the .308 Winchester, and the 6,5×55 SE. The N150 is one of, if not the best, all-rounder powder for European hunting calibers. N150 is a tubular powder type with grain dimensions of 1,3 mm length and 1,1 mm diameter and the nearly symmetrical shape makes it a good companion for all kinds of reloading equipment.
The burn rate of the N150 is on the medium scale of rifle powders. It is also one of the most temperature-insensitive powders, and thanks to the added decoppering agent, the coppering of the rifle barrel is minor even when using copper bullets.
Other Important Information:
