Vihtavuori rifle powder N130, formerly known as N303, is a multipurpose powder for various rifle calibres, and suitable especially for small game hunting and target shooting.
Factory ammunition regularly employs N130. This includes calibre’s such as .22 and 6 mm PPC cartridges. It is also an excellent handloading match for lighter bullets in calibre .223 Remington and for straight-wall rifle cases like the .45-70 Government and the .458 Winchester Magnum.
The Vihtavuori N130 is a single-base, tubular rifle powder type with grain dimensions of 1,0 mm length and 0,6 mm in diameter. On our scale of our rifle powders, the burning rate is relatively fast. Fun fact: The grain size of N130 is exactly the same as with N133 and N135, but due to differences in surface coatings, the burning behaviour of these powders is different.
