brian b,
I sent you an email direct today. I'll take the N550 for that price. Send me instructions and address. Thanks!

Re: Who is using VihtaVuori 500 series powders

I've got a 2lb can of the 540, 550, and 560. Have only had a chance to try a few loads with these powders but did have a load for my 30-06 using 150grn bullets and VN550 that did a little over 3000fps out of a 22" sporter barrel without any pressure signs and using less than the max VV data. In your case, the VN560 may be the way to go. BM

Re: Who is using VihtaVuori 500 series powders

I'm interested if finding out who is using VV powders for reloading the 300 RUM and what the results are. Any users?

Re: Who is using VihtaVuori 500 series powders

If using 165 grain bullets, N165 works ok, but that case is so huge that it really shines with 180-220 grain bullets. These heavier bullets will zip with N170.
180's would like about 99 grains or more, and around 93 for 220's. Of course you'll have to bump up in .5 grain increments to find max with your gun.

TDV N570 has the same burn rate as Retumbo and should perform well in the 300RUM. It also shows velocity advantages in the Vihta Reloading catalog over N165 and N170 also.
