Thread: n160

    n160

    Must be plenty of you on here that uses it, would you say it was quite a punchy kicky powder, would hodgdon feel softer to shoot with.

    Swaro,

    I use it in my Swede. I've little experience of other powders, but don't find N160 unpleasant to shoot in my rifle.

    Cheers,

    Bob

    Works a treat in my Swede too. Hard to see that any N160 load could be described as harsh on recoil.

    What grainage does the 55 use

  5. #5
    I use N160 in .243 (75-100gr), .270 (110-150gr) and 300WM (175-208gr)

    I like it
    burns clean, good case fill ratios
    have recently tried H4831 and N165 in the 300
    cant say I noticed a recoil difference but the groups were better with N160

    i would say it is comparable to RL22, H4831

    Shoot my 270wsm loaded with 66 grains of it and you may change your mind, especially without a mod .
