Vihtavuori Smokeless Powder has earned a stellar reputation as one of the best smokeless powders on the market, and is used by some of the best shooters and manufacturers in the competitive shooting industry.
All of these powders have been rigorously tested to ensure they burn cleanly and have consistent shooting characteristics in any climate. Due to their complete management of the manufacturing process, from the initial nitrocellulose production all the way through to the final product’s packaging, Vihtavuori Smokeless Powders are widely regarded as having consistently high quality.
Typically found in rifle calibers, the N100 series powders are single base powders. With the exception of 20N29 and 24N41, Vihtavuori N170 is the slowest burning rifle powder in the N100 series, and among the slowest canister-grade powders currently on the market. Vihtavuori N170 rifle powder grains are similarly shaped to their sister products; they are extruded cylinders with a single perforation.
The size of the grains is relatively large, measuring 1.70 mm in length and 1.10 mm in width. N170 powder is a very slow burning reloading powder that provides excellent performance in most of the belted Magnum cartridges and is a top choice for very large capacity cases like the.300 Weatherby Mag. and.300 Remington Ultra Mag. Reloaders utilize N170 powder for long-range big-game hunting and target shooting.
In addition, please note the following:
If you want to reload, follow the reloading guide’s recommended loads.
Never combine different powders, regardless of their origins, brands, or types.
Black Powder and all Black Powder substitutes must never be used in place of smokeless powder.
