WHY CHOOSE VIHTAVUORI POWDERS FOR RELOADING?
All of our gun powders meet the strict requirements of both civilian and military needs.
They’re Clean Burning
Our use of only the finest of raw materials is a renowned characteristic of all Vihtavuori powders. We take great pride in producing a very pure and clean-burning powder that allows longer shooting sessions between cleanings.
The clean-burning characteristics of our rifle and handgun powders result in greatly reduced carbon build-up and powder fouling.
Ultimately giving longer barrel life for rifles. Read more on our rifle and handgun powders here!
They come with a Decoppering agent
After extensive testing and development, we’ve begun adding a decoppering agent to all of our smokeless powders. This additive deters the adhesion and build-up of copper fouling in the bore, ie. the inside of the barrel of a firearm.
Excessive jacket material fouling is a well-known and established cause of accuracy loss when shooting. Our new decoppering agent prevents much of barrel fouling from building up in the first place, greatly prolonging your shooting sessions, and extending barrel life.
They’re extremely temperature stable
Temperature stability in reloading powders has always been a consideration, but with the recent improvements in Long Range and ELR shooting, it has become a factor of major concern to shooters.
Firing at long ranges places greater demands on ammo, equipment, and the shooter himself for instance.
Enabling a shooter to meet these demands means refining the process, and eliminating those variables which reduce hit probability.
They’re lot-to-lot consistent
This demanding process requires constant testing, verification, and adjustment to ensure that each run is perfectly compatible with those before and after.
This is a guiding principle of our powder production philosophy in other words.
We require extreme accuracy and quality at every step of our production process, most importantly.
