Vihtavuori Smokeless Powders are renowned for their consistent and excellent quality, which is achieved through complete control of the entire production chain, which begins with the production of nitrocellulose and ends with the bottling of the finished product.
For more than 85 years, these strict quality acceptance limits have enabled reloaders and cartridge manufacturers to achieve consistent loads regardless of the production lot used in their production.

Powders in the N100 series are single base powders that are primarily used in rifle calibers. It is one of the most popular reloading products available from Vihtavuori, and their N150 multipurpose rifle powder is no exception. It is commonly used in cartridges with middle case volumes, such as the.30-06 Springfield, the.308 Winchester, and the 6,5-55 SE, with heavier bullets in accuracy loads and hunting loads. Among European hunting calibers, the N150 is one of, if not the best, all-arounder powders available.
With grain dimensions of 1,3 millimeters in length and 1 millimeters in diameter, N150 is a tubular powder type with nearly symmetrical grain shape that makes it a good companion for all types of reloading equipment. The N150 burns at a rate that is in the middle of the range for rifle powders. It is also one of the least temperature sensitive powders available, and thanks to the addition of a decoppering agent, coppering of the rifle barrel is kept to a bare minimum even when copper bullets are used with it.
Additional Information of Importance:
- Do not load the cartridges with more than the maximum loads specified in the reloaders guide.
- There should never be any mixing of two powders, regardless of the type, brand, or source of the powders.
- Never substitute any other smokeless powder for black powder or any other substitute for black powder.
