Thread: Varget or N140

  1. #1

    Varget or N140

    Recently changed my 7mm08 for a .308, always used Varget in the 7mm but also reload for my .22-250 using N140. Got a wee bit of both powders left so I'm ready for a stock up. Should I reload for both using N140 or is Varget going to be better suited to the .308?

    Im thinking use just N140 for both but is there any particular advantage to using Varget in the .308?

    I have changed to TR140, almost identical in use to N140 and cheaper at 55 Kg

    Either will do your job.
    Go for the one which you can easily source locally or cheapest if you have the choice of both of them.

    N140 is cheaper and is a very good powder. Use it in my .308 and .223 with reliable consistency.
    If you get 3.5kg tubs it'll beat the TR140 prices.

    Just been and got a tub of N140 - 72 for 1kg, is that a good bad or indifferent price? Got it from my local gunclub so I don't care too much about cost as its supporting them, just interested to know? Club chairman also gave me 10 towards Movenber, so that was a bonus!

    A little high but probably about ave for retail. Last tub of N160 I got was 65 couple of weeks back but from a guy who moves alot of product.

    If they don't move volume they'll get hit with high Hazmat transport charges so 75 prob about right for a low volume outfit.

    That's expensive, Barbican in Durham sell N140 for 60/Kg and as has been said TR140 is almost identical and is 55/Kg, works very well in my .308s
