    VV lists data for it (a 130 grain) so this is your opportunity to pioneer it's use and report to the rest of us. ~Muir

    That's a really fast-burning powder for the swede with a 129gr bullet. Are you after something special, like really low muzzle blast from a really short barrel or something to that effect?

    Not really, just have a full tub to use. I have bullets to use in 100g 120g 123g & 129g just wondering if anyone shot with this combination.

    Intuitively may be more suited to the lighter bullets. Pressure may peak quickly but saying that I know H4895 has been used in the swede and that is faster than N140

    Been down this route. N140 is fast but if barrel short like a 20" May get results but not with lighter billets in my experience.
    my chosen powders are
    IMR 4350 for 120/123gr
    RL17 or N150 for 129sst
    but I'm sure there will be others
