Excellent stuff

By Cale R. on Sep 26, 2020
I've used Unique for years and from time looked for alternatives that were cleaner, more accurate, better metering, etc. I always ended up coming back to Unique because of its versatility. I can use it in all my handguns (9mm, 38, 357, 45 ACP), 12 and 20 gauge, and even reduced 223 loads. I can't seem to find Unique anywhere now, so I took a chance on this Vectan powder. So far I've tried this in 357 and 38 loads, and I am impressed. It is very clean, I mean it is THE cleanest powder I've tried in 38 special. It's a bulky powder that fills the case well. I'm getting a little more velocity from A1 than I get from an equivalent charge of Unique in both 38 and 357, and the A1 MUCH cleaner. Accuracy is excellent especially in the 357. Metering through my Lee powder measure is a bit more consistent than Unique as well. I will be trying it in my other calibers eventually, but even if I only use it in 38 and 357 I would buy more.

Very Good Powder.

I emailed [email protected] and they sent me better reloading data than I could find online, tried it with .45 Colt and cast bullets and it was really clean burning and accurate. I have tested almost all the powders that work for this caliber and Vectan has been the best for me.

Viva la France!!!!

Thank you my French friends! (Merci mes amis Français!) I bought this powder blind, only knowing Grafs was giving me an "offer I couldn't refuse" and I could load my 38 & 357 with it. While the reloading information is not what we are used to, it was sufficient. I was able to put all my shots in a 3-inch red bullseye (with about a 2-inch spread on all five shots) at 7 yards with my Rossi 38spc with 2" barrel! That's fantastic! And clean burning! I was also shooting Unique and Vectan A1, and the Vectan is so much cleaner! This powder is MAGNIFIQUE!!!
