Vihtavuori N540 Smokeless Powder 1 Pound
Superb long-range performance with heavy bullets in the .308 Winchester and in many 6.5 and 7mm cartridges with medium case capacity.

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+
