Paul is right kauko......there is nothing bad about Vihtavuori powders, they are a well respected European powder. Iused to use Vihtavuori small pistol primers some years ago, but I found them too hard in my target pistol once the action had been tuned so I went over to Federal.

Mate, as Paul says, use the powder that suits your needs and delivers the best accuracy for you. Also, Paul won't lie.....as a minister, or man of God, its just not in him to do so. Laughing

Cheers, Vince

Most importantly; at the end of the day once the firearms are secured and the beers come out, a most important part of the hunt starts. Camaraderie, telling lies about the "45x76" buck you just couldn't quite get a shot at, bragging about the 1000 yd head shot on the PD you managed,...

You keep forgetting that pot holes are not my job but painting is my line of work. You know, like lane arrows, lines etc. But your right, I am going back to work on the 2nd of April.

I think that a good story about that 600 yard kill on a deer is about as close to a lie as I've heard from you guys - and I am sure that it was the honest truth. Its just that some folks have smaller yard sticks than others
Wink
on these boards I get to be just one of the guys. Thats why I likw it here so much.
