Vihtavuori Smokeless Powders are credited with uniform and superb quality based on full control of the whole production chain beginning from the production of nitrocellulose to the bottling of the end product. These strict quality acceptance limits have helped reloaders and cartridge manufacturers to achieve similar loads regardless of the production lot for more than 85 years. It is easy to see why Vihtavuori Smokeless Powders have achieved a strong position among top class shooters around the world.
Vihtavuori’s N570 rifle powder is one of the more recent products in our high-energy powder family. It was developed at the request of magnum cartridge reloaders. We realized that this kind of powder was desired yet lacking on the market, so we decided to develop N570 powder to meet our customers’ needs.
The characteristics of this high energy powder with its large grain size and high bulk density are developed to bring out the maximum velocities of cartridges with very large volume cases like the 6,5-.284 Norma, the .300 Winchester Magnum, the .300 Remington Ultra Magnum and the .338 Lapua Magnum.
Vihtavuori N570 powder is very well suited for long-range target shooting and in military applications with big volume cartridges.
N570 powder is the slowest of our high-energy powders and is an extruded, tubular powder type with grain dimensions of 2,3 mm length and 1,3 mm diameter. Due to the large kernel size (similar to 24N41 and 20N29), we recommend you to always weigh your N570 charges rather than relying on throws from powder measures, as they do not always deliver consistent charges. This way you can avoid under or over-charging cases.
Like all of our N500 series rifle powders, the N570 is manufactured from our own high-quality nitro-cellulose with grains impregnated with nitroglycerine and non-energetic additives. The result: increased muzzle velocity without increased chamber pressure and without increased wear on the gun!
