    EURENCO has stated they will close the company down for good in June 2014. The only way i can see this not happening is if a buyout takes place soon. Otherwise the V-V powder will cease to exist. .....SEMPER FI!

    Holy crap! I hope they can manage....I have been wanting to try some of their N165 in my 7mmSTW, but can't seem to find any. I'd sure hate to find out my rifle loves it, then they tank....

    Keep us updated, if you don't mind?

    V-V powder is safe for now. Just go to EURENCO and it is there.

    Yes,maybe we should because what i read doesn't clearly put VV powder on the safe list. Seems that the Finnish Gov't has stepped in and are giving some hope there. We will only have to wait and see. If EURENCO can shut down one,why couldn't they shut down the other 4 that they own? It is going to be interesting to see the outcome. It is really kind of a scary situation, with all the gun ban talk, what if a component ban were on the plate as well? Just another worry we will have to live with. ..... SEMPER FI!

    It will be interesting to see if their Gov't. will help with some type of bailout. With the way things are in Europe it may not happen. We can only guess right now and hope for the best. Is VV-133 any good for the 22-250? Would like to know from first hand knowledge. ..... SEMPER FI!

    RL19 & RL22 is the most accurate powder for my 264 & 7mag.
    plus they quit making aa 3100.
    I guess it's back to finding a good powder bullet combo.

    For the time being it seems VV is safe. Go to your browser and type EURENCO and read. ..... SEMPER FI!
