Vihtavuori Reloading Guide 10-2012

For Centerfire Cartridges - edition 10

  1. melbo
    Dear Vihtavuori customer,

    The new Vihtavuori Reloading Guide Edition 10 for Centerfire Ammunition is an updated version of the previous Vihtavuori Reloading Guides. The contents of this updated issue has been revised with loading data for the following calibres:


    The now published new rifle reloading data is expanding and revising the powder selection for existing bullets but also contains new caliber data for 223 WSSM and 7 mm WSM.

    As a courtesy to the reloader the load tables contain notes of compressed loads and loads to fill the case up. For flexible usage this guide features data in metric and imperial dimension systems i.e. charge weight in grams and grains as well as muzzle velocity in meters and feet per second. This reloading guide also includes the accuracy loads noted in the load tables. These loads utilize worldwide well-known Lapua cartridge components and are factory tested either for even pressure / muzzle velocity and accuracy. These loads are highlighted in the load tables with dark grey shadowing.

    All the loads in this guide are pressure tested according to the C.I.P. method. The maximum loads given in the tables are determined according to the C.I.P. and SAAMI maximum pressure specifications. The listed maximum loads should never be exceeded. Due to the differences in the cartridge components, individual weapons, shooting temperatures etc., always start developing your load by using the starting load according to the loading data. If there is no indication of the starting load, use 15 % lower charge than the listed maximum load as your starting load.

    The Vihtavuori powders are manufactured by Eurenco Vihtavuori Oy at the Vihtavuori plants. Sales and marketing of the reloading powders as well as customer service are carried out by Nammo Lapua Oy. The contact details of Lapua customer service and a listing of Vihtavuori Distributors can be found at the end of this guide. For latest updates of data and distributors check also Homepage - Vihtavuori or Home - Lapua where this guide can also be downloaded in PDF format. We wish you successful reloading with Vihtavuori powders.

    Price is right, good discussion of safety and good data. While they don't say what their powders replace, they do tell what is similar to. Best use of all reloading data for survival is to help you pick the few powders that are good, if not the best, and standardize. Eight lbs of 1 powder will reload a lot of 308 and with primers, lead casting pot and primers is a small investment.t The ultimate barter tool may well be reloading other people's spent brass. If nothing else, it excellent reading for those of us with a dozen manuals already.
