Vihtavuori Smokeless Powder has a reputation as one of the best smokeless powders available from some of the best shooters and manufacturers in the competitive fire industry. All these powders ensure clean burning properties and repeatable shooting in all weather conditions. Smokeless Powders from Vihtavuori are credited with a uniform, superb quality based on full control of the entire production chain, starting with nitrocellulose production and end product packaging.
These stringent quality limitations helped reloaders and cartridge manufacturers achieve similar loads for more than 85 years regardless of the production lot. It is easy to understand why Vihtavuori Smokeless Powders are among the world’s leading shoots.
The powders of the N100 series are single base powders mainly used in gun calibers. The Vihtavuori N165 is a worldwide powder for heavy bullet magnum rifles in the heavy bullet magnum caliber. It works well in Lapua Magnum with a capacity of 250 gr but can handle a wide range of sizes from 6,5 to 416 SE.
It works especially well in the Lapua Magnum. The N165 powder grains are exactly as big as the N160, but the surface coating differs in the burning features, as the powder grains are 1,3 mm (length x 1,0 mm). N165 is a very slow-burning rifle powder, making it a superior choice with heavy bullets for the same number of cartridges.
