Seems to be the only thing available in France at an affoardable price.

Cant seem to get any comparision to Hogdons etc... or reloading data on this.

I am currently set up to reload 222 Remington Magnum, 300 Win Mag and in the near future 6.5x47 Lapua if I get lucky...

Would appreciate any and all advice.

VV powders are very clean and consistant in my experiance (VV-N320 & VV-N340) with the 45acp. The people I`ve talked to useing it in rifles seem to have the same impression of it.
Data can be found on the Lapua/WithaVouri web site.

That is good news... thank you everyone...

I shall digest the reloading information, select powders and report back on progress.

Afy,

Great powder. Suggest you try N160 for the .300 Win Mag. It will also work well with the 6.5x47 Lapua.

Donīt use them please, because it is many times too hard to find them here in Finland. (Vihtavuori powders are made in Finland powders, you knoww). :uhoh: :cuss: :uhoh:

It's been my observation that anything gun-related from Finland is excellent. They make great fishing lures too. Must be a nation of sportsmen.

Vihtavouri powders are not that much more expensive than others when you get the 8-lb jugs.

Another fan of VV. It is my go to powder for match rifles.

Did you look at the VV reloading data on Lapua's web site?

http://www.lapua.com/fileadmin/user_upload/esitteet/VihtavuoriInternationalReloguide2008.pdf

Also, if you are a QuickLoad user, it has all the VV powder data.

Have ordered the N-165 and N-133 for starters...

I would have liked to use IMR or Hogdon but its just not available...

Now have to wait at least the four weeks before I can try out the loads...

Am away for the next two weeks, and will be back only for a weekend.

Hopefully my dies will be here in time... :)

Top notch stuff. If all I had available for powders were Vihtavouri, I'd be happy with that. (This coming from a die-hard IMR user.) :)

I use it in my 308 and it works very well. It is one on the cleanest and easy to figure the load on that I have found besides the 4350 sc that I was using until I found this powder.

I use VV in pistols/rifles and it works well. Clean and consistant.

Do you know if Alliant 2400 and/or H110 is available in Finland? I really would like to buy some, but can't find it anywhere :(

I just recently changed from HS-6 to VV 3N37 for my 9mm loads. I won't be going back. Better speeds, less spread over the Chronograph, cleaner pistol after a 500 round session, less smoke. It costs me .6 cents more per round but the added benefits are worth it to me. The cost difference would probably be wiped out if I bought large quantities.

In my opinion Vihtavouri powders are fine powders. Funny how quality does tend to run a little more expensive.
