Could I have found the perfect powder?

OK, on paper, it seems that N540 and H414 might work well in my 270 wsm with a 150gr Berger and my 223 with a 40 or 50 gr vmax. One powder, two diff cal guns? Could it be so? Or does it not translate from the web to the target or through the chrono?

Since Vit seems to be hard to find I might try the Hogdon. Has anyone tried the 414 in 270wsm 150gr Berger (looking for 3,000fps) or the 223 with a 40gr vmax (around 37-3800 fps)?

If not either of these what about Winchester 760?

    H414 and win 760 are the same powder under different names. Neither one is the right burn for the 223....they are both really slow for that application. They will work in the wsm though.

    Sorry. We have to find the "perfect" powder for anything at the test range, not in a book.

    yup you are correct, I don't know what he heck I saw..........or thought I saw.

    I agree, just because it says on paper it will work doesn't mean it will be the best for my gun. No doubt it gets figured out at the range....................I guess "perfect" wasn't the best term to use.

    My 6.5 WSM likes RL 22, 25 and WSM in that order.
