    i ran vit 140 when i change rifles it burns just a tad faster no 98 , above varget at 99 that is slower by two tenths of naff all in the burn rate chart

    Hi. What about this cfe 223 from Hodgdon ? Anyone been using it as it looks like Viht is going to get scarcer from what i've been hearing ?

    Why do you think that Vihtavuori will be getting scarcer, you haven't been listening to those old rumours about the factory closing have you?

    Have you looked at trying TR140, Ramshot or Lovex (Accurate Arms). All European and good powders, also cheaper and probably better.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    I'm not sure about 70g, don't you mean 70gr? Grams to Grains conversion Regards JCS
