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 N500 series powders are impregnated, extruded gun powders to which nitroglycerol has been added to give them more energy. If you need more energy and higher loading densities, you can use the N500 series powders instead of the N100 series powders. Vihtavuori N555 smokeless rifle powder is made for precision rifles with cartridges like the 6mm Creedmoor, 6.5 Creedmoor,.284 Winchester,.260 Remington, and.30-06 Springfield. It is also made for rifle calibers with a large case volume and a small bullet diameter. Hunters and people who shoot competitively will benefit from the powder’s insensitivity to extreme weather.
N555 is the reloading powder with the best performance in the 6.5 Creedmoor. It is the most temperature stable powder in its class. Like all Vihtavuori reloading powders, N555 has an anti-fouling agent that keeps the barrel from getting clogged up with gunpowder. This lets you shoot longer in competitions. The N555 powder is so consistent from lot to lot that you don’t have to spend expensive range time re-developing your favorite loads. N555 has 3,700 J of energy per gram, and it weighs 900 g per liter. The rate that N555 powder burns is somewhere between N550 and N160.
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.
