Vihtavuori N550 Smokeless Gun Powder
Vihtavuori N550 Smokeless Powder is utilized by some of the top shooters and manufacturers in the competitive shooting field, and it has earned a good reputation as one of the best smokeless powders on the market.
In all weathers and settings, these powders assure clean burning and repeatable shooting properties. Vihtavuori Smokeless Powders are renowned for their consistent and superior quality, which is based on complete control of the entire production chain, from nitrocellulose production to end-product bottling.
For more than 85 years, these tight quality acceptance limitations have assisted reloaders and cartridge makers in achieving identical loads regardless of production lot. It’s easy to see why Vihtavuori Smokeless Powders have gained a solid following among world-class shooters.
Nitroglycerol is added as a supplementary energy component to the N500 series powders, which are impregnated extruded rifle powders.
If higher loading densities and energy are required, N500 series powders are capable substitutes for N100 series powders. In the late 1990s, Vihtavuori’s N550 rifle powder was created for.30-06 Springfield and.308 Win. calibers.
The Vihtavuori N550 is a good fit for many 30 caliber magnums with lighter bullets, but it is also effective in a variety of shooting disciplines over a wide range of bore diameters. It is a good powder for.30-06 Springfield hunting rounds with heavier bullets, as well as other more powerful loads such as.308 Winchester and others.
The Vihtavuori N550 is a tubular powder with grain size of 1.0 mm length and 1.0 mm diameter. Nitroglycerine has been added to the standard single base powder, as with all N500 series powders, to improve energy content. N550 has a similar burning rate to N150 rifle powder and is on the midrange scale of high energy powders. When compared to the N100 series, higher velocity is obtained with identical pressure – without additional rifle wear!
Other Important Information:
- Do not exceed the loads displayed in the reloaders guide.
- Never mix any two powders regardless of type, brand, or source.
