Just a guess.

J E, a darn good guess........

And nope, I'm not into blendin'. Over the years I've have to toss at least a couple of cans in the fire place.

Re: Superformance powder for reloaders

How similar is it to the Vihatavouri(?) 5-- series powders? They are suppose to give higher velocity at lower pressure. I think they are a double base powder, but also heard they are harder on the barrel.

Info from lapua
N500 series


The N500 series powders are impregnated extruded rifle powders with Nitroglycerol added as extra energy component. If higher loading densities and more energy are needed, N500 series powders are competent alternatives for the N100 series powders. N500 series High Energy powders are available in five different burning rates



Stu.

Re: Superformance powder for reloaders

It is sounding like 2 new powders, not lines of powder. I'm not very up to date with the superformance ammo. What is the burn rate of the powder? What cartridges will it be useable in?
