Thread: Viht or Hodgdon?

  1. #1

    Viht or Hodgdon?

    Which do you prefer?

    I have been thinking that N-140 is about the same as Varget,
    & that N135 is about the same as H4895, is there likey to be little change of POI when switching between brands due to lack of availability?

    for the last 10 years i have used 33.2 grains of H4895 with a 95 grain SST and never had a problem all ways consistent POI

    I stand to be corrected but I think Varget is faster burning than N140 .

    h4895 v N140

    in my 7mm08 120 or 130 gr loads there is no differrence in poi between the two powders.

    DL, Your rifle might be different.

    Powder Dry

    I used to use N140 in my 22-250 and moved to Varget.

    Similar but not the same.

    Same story with my 308 0.5 grain less for N140 .

    Like it better though, dont know why but I do.
