Product Information

Vihtavuori N540 is a universal rifle powder for wide variety of medium-sized calibers suitable for both hunting and target shooting. It is an excellent choice for cartridges running from .223/5.56 mm to .308 Winchester and 30-06 Springfield with heavier bullet weights.

Vihtavuori N540 delivers outstanding accuracy with exceptionally clean burning. Due to the extra energy content that all of our N500 series powders include, a velocity up to 30-40 m/s higher can be achieved with the same pressure level compared to the equal in the N100 Vihtavuori series. It is certainly worth trying when using heavier bullets and when higher loading densities and muzzle velocities are needed!

Thanks to its symmetrical size (1,0 mm length and 1,0 mm diameter), N540 meters well in reloading equipment and makes loading super easy.


WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals including N-Nitrosodiphenylamine and Di-n-butyl phthalate, which are known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. For more information go to -

VihtaVuori N540

By C Rob J. on Jul 29, 2016
Expensive, but to my way of thinking well worth it.

N540 is my #1 choice for 7.62x51NATO/.308 WIN rounds. It's the only powder that is proven to work well in extreme cold weather, and I want that performance. Double based powders (like N540) are much better for the cold. In the Winter I do a lot of "Service Rifle Biathlon", so I rely on N540 and it just shrugs off the freeze. I grant you, pressure & velocity go down a bit, but it still shines for accuracy. AND it meters well in my Dillon 550B powder measure, which is pure magic because most tubular extruded (Lincoln-log) powders give metering trouble in most powder measures.

I'm a Happy Shooter with this stuff, A+
