Thread: Single or double base powder

  1. #1

    Single or double base powder

    I'm about to start rolling my own billets for my 243 for various reasons what's better and why I'll be using Vectan piwder if that makes a difference.

    Personally I would go single base and a mid range powder like tu5000 to allow use of a full range of bullets up to maximum for calibre weight

    So TU7000 as TU5000 is not listed for a 100 grain load.

    They do list loads for TU5000 with a 100grn bullet Welshwarrior (start 28.5grn, maximum load 34.7grn).
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Brilliant thank you I'd only found this data in English anyway.

    I think the Peter Lawman site is probably a bit out of date welshwarrior and as far as trying to buy the powder off him, well let's just say he's difficult to contact and most people give up in frustration.
    I've used several of the Vectan powders and really like them especially if the price is right, TU2000 being absolutely brilliant in .222rem. I would use them even more if I could pick them up locally but distribution has always been a bit of a problem. Can I ask where you got yours from.

    P.S. I have an old copy of the NobelSport reloading manual, the book and not the pamphlet. Although it only gives data for Nobel/Vectan powders as a reference book on reloading it really is one of the best I have ever come across. It is especially useful with regard to European cartridges and equipment used to reload them.

    Thank you I've a very good supply with in 1/2 mile of the house so that's why I'm keen to use it. I buy it direct from Express on my work account.

    If you need help with supply I head back to The Marches regularly I'd be happy to help you out.

    Thank you I may take you up on that. I did enquire with them some years ago but at the time they simply weren't interested in pushing the product.
