    Does anyone know where I can get any N140. I have three rifles that like it and cant find any in stock. I don't usually get this low, but its been a while since I've been able to find any.

    Thanks john_m44

    Try Powder Valley. I use N150 and I always get mine from them and they always had VV powders in stock.

    I actually work a short ways from there, they have most of the VV except N140.

    Call Bruno's. He doesn't show powders on his web site, but VV is in his PS ad.

    Gene: Bruno Shooters Supply does show powders on their website along with availability.

    Bruno's shows both sizes of N-140 (1 lb. & 8 lb.) as not being in stock. You could call to confirm.

    Here ya go; EAB shows it, but I did not call to find out whether its in stock. I have a full two pounder I bought couple years ago, was not impressed with it.

    Hmmm . . . . Is it the powder or the decaf? Can't shoot tight groups if you're all jittery and nervous.

    Hey guys,

    saw this one and thought I'd mention, we have a large shipment of V-V N140 (along with several other flavors) on the way over right now. Should be here within the next month or so, and out into the pipline from there. Check your usual sources; Graf's, Kaltron-Pettibone, etc..

    Graffs had vv570 in stock, I ordered 8 lbs. I have been hunting this powder for nearly 2 years. Last I heard they were having problems importing this powder, I guess they got it figured out. When you run any of the large magnums in quickload this powder is usually the top dog as far as velocity, but I have never been able to confirm it......we will see. If it is as good as vv560 things look good.
