Vihtavuori N540 is a universal rifle powder suitable for hunting and target shooting in a wide range of medium-sized calibers. This can be used for cartridges with heavier bullet weights ranging from 0.223/5.56mm to 0.308 Winchester and 30-06 Springfield.
With exceptionally clean burning, Vihtavuori N540 provides outstanding precision. Due to the additional energy content of all powders in our N500 series, a velocity up to 30-40 m/s higher than in the series of the N100 Vihtavuori can be achieved at the same pressure level. When using heavier bullets and when more load densities and muzzle speeds are required, this is definitely worth trying!
