    I was doing some research for my rifle reload.. and i found out .. a whole lot of rifle shooters don't use Vihtavuori(sa US ha.. don't know here).. is there another brand here available?? maybe Varget(very popular)???



    Side note: yes i know medyo same story sa gastos.. but i can load up a 77gr Sierra Head and fully use the 1/7 barrel that i got :) para sa long shooting lang, we went long range shooting the other week.. and man.. when we got to 400++ yards.. we were missin.. although there was some strong winds at the time. sa 200++ yards.. headshot.. kaya. but pag.dating ng 400++.. wala na. 5 shots.. 1 lang or 2 ba yun..

    varget is a good powder for 223. Used to use a surplus powder repackage by accurate arms. Forgot the name of it. VV is too expensive over here.
