    Vectan Tubal 3000

    I have some of this powder to try out for my 7mm08 and .308W. The published loading is a bit scant so I was wondering if anyone had tried this powder in my calibres? I normally use 120 or 140gn bulets in 7mm08 and 150gn in .308W.

    My Nobel reloading manual shows;

    .308w 151 Grn FMJ(GIANT) 44 Grns Tu3000 2789 fps 3147 Bar CCI BR2 primer GIANT case
    .308w 151 Grn FMJ(GIANT) 44.8 Grns Tu3000 2858 fps 3460 Bar CCI BR2 primer GIANT case
    .308w 150 Grn RWS KS 40.1 Grns Tu3000 2723 fps -------- Win LR RWS case
    .308w 150 Grn RWS KS 44 Grns Tu3000 2789 fps 3250 Bar Win LR RWS case

    7mm-08 145 Grn HPBT (GIANT) 39.2 Tu3000 2805 fps 3550 Bar Fed210 primer Giant case
    7mm-08 145 Grn HPBT Speer 40.1 Tu3000 2802 fps 3564 Bar Win LR primer Remington case
    7mm-08 150 Grn HPBT Sierra 39.4 Tu3000 2726 fps 3364 Bar Win LR primer Remington case

    I hope this is some help. I haven't used any of these loads myself but I have used Tu2000 in .222 with superb results, Tu5000 in 8x57 and .270win with good results and thanks to the very generous donation of splash off this site I am now working up loads with Sp7 in the 8x57.
    Nobel powders would certainly be the ones that I would always go for if supply was only better.

    Where did you get the reloading manual from? I've seen some on-line data, but it's hard to follow and not very comprehensive. I currently use TU5000 in my 303s, and sometimes in my 308.
    You can't say muntjac without saying, Mmmmmm.

    Thanks 8x57, I have downloaded the manual but as I said the info is a bit vague. I was rather hoping that someone had worked up some loads for 150 gn in .308W and 140gn in 7mmo8 to give me a bit of a head start.

    I have used VU7000 for four years now in my .243 and would not want to swap unless the Euro beats the .. Google Peter Lawman Firearms and he will be able to provide what you are looking for. Peter has supplied all of my Vectan powders. Spiker.

    I have used Vectan a bit, TU 7000 works well in the 243 as said, I have some loads to test using Tu 2000 for the 223. I couldn’t get any good loads for the 270 or WSSM using Vectan though.

    Harry mac, the Nobel manual came from Peter Lawman who distributes the powder. I found the manual to be one of the best with regard to general information on reloading, the only problem with it is that it only gives information on Nobel powders.

    Tahr I like your set up, very colour co-ordinated. You probably went out with the express desire to buy a red drill just to match the rest
    My bench is a mix of green, red, orange and blue equipment, and I can't remember what colour the cordless is supposed to be. I do have the same silver ultrasonic cleaner as you though, have you thought of having it spryed red yet?
    You should be able to get very good results with the Tu2000 in .223 if my .222 is anything to go by. I had reasonable results with Tu5000 in .270win but nothing outstanding.

    Hi Harry

    I tell the wife she is like my reloading bench…………………..looks great in red.

    I tried Tu3000 and 5000 in the 270, 3000 was not up to much and the 5000 was not outstanding, I used RL19 and 22, but found mine liked H4831sc best, although I have some RL17 and I want to try some loads with magnum primers as well because I have loads of the things.

    I used Vit with the 223 up until now.
