Some of the best shooters and manufacturers in the competitive shooting industry use Vihtavuori Smokeless Powder. It has a great reputation for being one of the best smokeless powders on the market. All of these powders burn cleanly and shoot the same way every time, no matter what the weather or conditions are. People say that Vihtavuori Smokeless Powders have a consistent and high level of quality because they have full control over the whole production process, from making the nitrocellulose to putting the powder in bottles.
For more than 85 years, these strict quality acceptance limits have helped reloaders and cartridge manufacturers get the same loads no matter how many lots they make. It’s easy to see why Vihtavuori smokeless powders are so popular among top shooters all over the world.
The powders in the N100 series have a single base and are mostly used in rifle calibers. Vihtavuori N135 powder was first made for the 7.6251 NATO M80 Ball, but now it is a universal gun powder that reloaders use for a wide range of calibers, from the.222 Remington to the.458 Winchester Magnum. The Vihtavuori N135 powder is a tube-shaped powder with grains that are 1 mm long and 0.8 mm wide.
On a scale of how fast rifle powders burn, this one is in the middle. Interesting fact: The grain sizes of N135 powder, N133, and N130 are all the same, but the way they burn is different because of the different coatings on their surfaces. N135 is mostly used by people who hunt medium-sized animals and shoot targets from far away.
Another important fact:
Don’t load more than what is shown in the reloaders guide.
Never mix two different types, brands, or sources of powder.
Never use smokeless powder or any other kind of powder that isn’t Black Powder.
