Re: VihtiVuori N-540. Unbelievable results.

Yes. Both N135 and N540 have cleaned up easily for me. For some strange reason, N540 is the only powder I have tried where the first few patches get stuck in the throat area due to friction. After poking through several and having to push them out from the muzzle, I switched to using the bronze brush first instead of second. Once I run the brush through 10 times, it just needs a dry swab, a wet one a dry one, one last wet one, a dry one and I am ready to go. H4350 still cleans up the easiest in this barrel but the Vihts are a close second!
What has impressed my the most is how wide the accuracy nodes are. From 1 charge weight up 1 whole grain is the same accuracy, then it opens up a bit and another .5 grain up it is excellent again for another 1 grain. I cant do that with VARGET or RL15 for that matter!
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
