Product Information

The N140 powder was originally developed for the 7,62x53R cartridge for the Finnish Army in the early years of Vihtavuori’s history. Up to this day, it has remained as one of our best-selling powder types of all times.

N140 is a tubular powder type with grain dimensions of 1,0 mm length and 0,9 mm diameter. The structure, grain geometry and graphite coating makes it work excellent in all reloading machines and dosing is super easy. The N140 powder burns at a medium speed on our scale of rifle powders, making it a versatile handloading powder for both small game hunting and sport shooting applications.

N140 is not the choice if you try to reach highest muzzle velocity possible, but it is certainly the choice if you try to get best possible accuracy. This powder is a true multipurpose powder, which can be used for a large range of calibers from .223 Remington to .308 Winchester, 30-06 Springfield and .375 H&H Magnum, just to name few.


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 -

Great flexible powder

By Parker R. on Mar 01, 2019
Every VV powder I have used has metered perfectly, burned cleanly and consistently, and overall been great to use. This powder isn't an exception. It's barely more expensive than domestic powders, and is worth it to me.

I use N140 in <180gr 'light ball' loads for my surplus rifles. 6.5 swede, x54R, 8mm mau, and others. It's very flexible and performs well.
