Vihtavuori N540 Smokeless Gun Powder Description
Vihtavuori Reloading Powders are well-known and renowned for producing high-quality, reliable products. Vihtavuori has been producing propellants for over 80 years, and its extensive product line meets practically every requirement. All Vihtavuori powders are prepared in their own facilities using nitrocellulose derived from cotton linters.
Vihtavuori N540 is a universal rifle powder for a wide range of medium-sized calibers that is suitable for hunting and target shooting. It is a superb choice for cartridges with bullet weights ranging from .223/5.56 mm to.308 Winchester and 30-06 Springfield. The Vihtavuori N540 provides remarkable accuracy and clean burning.
Because of the additional energy content found in all N500 series powders, a velocity of up to 30-40 m/s higher can be attained with the same pressure level as the equivalent in the N100 Vihtavuori series. It’s definitely worth a go when utilizing heavier bullets and needing larger loading densities and muzzle velocity! N540 meters well in reloading equipment and makes loading incredibly easy due to its symmetrical size (1,0 mm length and 1,0 mm diameter).
Additional Information of Importance:
- Do not load the cartridges with more than the maximum loads specified in the reloaders handbook.
- There should never be any mixing of two powders, regardless of the type, brand, or source of the powders.
- Never replace any other smokeless powder for black powder or any other substitute for black powder.
