    Yes a very versatile powder that is used with many cartridges that have those bullet weights and heavier.


    The heaviest bullet that I have used it for so far is 250 grain and the lightest 130 grain, obviously in different calibres so you will need to be a bit more specific.

    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Not 30-06 but 8x57 which is similar, very good and accurate with both light and heavy (200 grn) bullets.

    I use n140 in everything. So that's .223, .22-250, 243, 308 and 375 h&h. It goes bang very nicely and deer fall over... having said that tr140 is 20 quid cheaper per kg than the vit so will go bang with ka-ching cashback....
