Thread: Tac or varget

    Tac or varget

    Running out if powder local shops don't have varget and are saying tac is the same. Anyone got any experience in 223 and 308?

    I'd let them pull the trigger on the first matching load.

    My local rfd Tony Russel has been trying Tac and hes been well impressed with the results. We had a chat about it last week. Tony is also a serious target shot.

    Viht N140 or Swiss TR140 if you can get them, 65 and 55/Kg respectively. Or if you can't get them try the Tac and see how you get on with it.

    Any idea what the recomended starting load for a 6X47SM with 85g bullet is if using "Swiss TR140"?

    Cheers

    The only info I have is for .308, however, it's virtually identical to Viht N140 so start a couple of grains below that load and work up in .5gr increments checking for any signs of over pressure.

    Thanks.

    I should have made a greater effort to get past Essex Customs and collect a tub of Varget from Paul O when I had the chance but back was playing up big time.

    Vectan tu5000 is also a good 308 powder and also has a near indentical burn rate to varget.

    And the SNPE Tubal 5000 works very well in 308 and 30-06...might need a drop tube for the heavier loads in 308 (I did).
