Vihtavuori N170 is used by some of the best shooters and manufacturers in the competitive shooting industry, and they have earned a well-deserved reputation as one of the best smokeless powders on the market today. Clean burning and repeatable shooting properties are guaranteed with all of these powders in all weather and shooting conditions.
Vihtavuori Smokeless Powders are renowned for their consistent and excellent quality, which is achieved through complete control of the entire production chain, which begins with the production of nitrocellulose and ends with the bottling of the finished product.
For more than 85 years, these strict quality acceptance limits have enabled reloaders and cartridge manufacturers to achieve consistent loads regardless of the production lot used in their production. It is easy to understand why Vihtavuori Smokeless Powders have earned such a prestigious reputation among top-level shooters all over the world.
Powders in the N100 series are single base powders that are primarily used in rifle calibers. It is worth noting that Vihtavuori N170 is the slowest-burning rifle powder in the N100 series (excluding 20N29 and 24N41), and it is also one of the slowest-burning canister-grade powders readily available from any manufacturer on the market (including other manufacturers). As with all Vihtavuori rifle powders, the N170 grains are extruded and are cylindrical with a single perforation, just like the rest of the line.
When measured in millimeters and millimeters, the grain size is approximately 1,7 mm in length and 1,1 mm in diameter. In addition to being an excellent choice for large capacity cases such as the.300 Weatherby Mag. and.300 Remington Ultra Mag., N170 is also a good choice for most belted Magnum cartridges due to its slow burning characteristics. In shooting disciplines such as long-range big-game hunting and target shooting, the N170 powder is used by reloaders to create bullets.
