Hi, I've got a superb load that works really well in my .30-06 using 150gr Intrelocks using Hogdons H4350. Does anyone know of a Vit powder that performs the same as the H4350 ?

Kind regards, Olaf

Viht N150 is about the same burn rate,
Lapua reloading data here.

Note that you'll still need to work up the load i.e. just cause it burns the same doesn't mean you use the same charge...

​P.S. for 150gr out of an .30-06 I'd consider N140.

Excuse me for being a bit thick, but do I understand correctly, if you get good performance with powder X, you should get very similar performance with another make of powder with very similar burn rate ?

Pm me if you're after imr4350 or h4350 and may be able to point you in the right direction or help you out

May be similar burn rates, but checking out the Lee manual shows very different MV's Vit N150 & N140 being some 200fps at least slower than H4350.

The nearest Vit. derivative propellant providing closer MV's in the manual is Ramshot Big Game, a Belgian propellant from a company now owned by Lapua.

My burn rate chart shows Ramshot Big Game propellant but much closer MV's, as being a little faster than H4350 & (faster) next to Vit. N140 also with much slower MV's. (again some 200fps slower) ATB

Thanks, your a true gentleman, I've now got some sorted, a result ! I was really not looking forwards to having to mess about sorting a new load out just when I've got this one working well. Its just a pain in the back side and a waste of time having to fiddle about like that.
If anyone hears of some more then please just PM me as I can always have a bit spare.

Kindest regards, Olaf
