    can you tell me where you are getting this loading data from . i cannot find any for vit 140 and 100gr bullets all the data for vit 140 stops at around the eighty to eighty five mark .

    Vihtavouri N140 is only ok up to 87grn bullet heads then above 87grn heads N 150, N 160, N 540, N550.

    A good combination is Sierra Game King ( code number 1560) 100grn heads over 42.2 grns Viht N 160.

    I guess I'd better stop using it then. Because its not in a book doesn't mean it doesn't work. This load was developed years ago to give about 2850fps.

    Only last week a friend of mine loaded 100grn Sierra Game Kings with your stated load above and popped every primer. He has now changed to N 160 as stated in my load detail and no problem.

    Ive been using this load for 3 years and the gentleman that introduced me to stalking has been using the same for many years and never had a problem. The load was originally developed I understand by a well known shooting club.
    Why your friend had a problem I have no idea.
