    napansin ko na favorite pala ni rob leatham ang Viht .N310 sa kaniyang pistolas....si jethro kaya ano ang powder? {parang sinusundan ni jet ang yapak ni leatham considering na pareho na silang nasa Standard at ayaw na sa Open;-) } bakit kaya N310 at hindi N320 o iba pang powders?

    310 is too fast for .40s, some people use it but I don't. Rob Leatham uses factory winchester white box .40s 165s.

    The gun club where I was a member in the Philippines was using VV N310 on .45 ACP reloads. I warned the management about this because the VV-Lapua reloading data does not include .45 ACP loads in the VV N310 line. A little error on the powder charge could really spike pressures up. That's why I always stay beside the person reloading my ammo.

    N310 is ok in 45 since the 45 is a low pressure round, wag nga lang talaga mag-double charge.

    Alam ko mag-experiment sina jason and judge ng n310, hindi ko lang alam kung natuloy o sumabog yung mga baril nila. :supergrin:

    Yep, just checked the VV website. The previous reloading data that I had didn't include it. But the 2004 now has it.

    Also compared the burn rate of the N310 against Bullseye and WW231. It burns faster than the Bullseye. Checked the starting and maximum load using Intercast 200gr SWC and there's not much room for error. Starting load is 3.7gr and max load is 4.0. That's just 0.3 gr.

    True, it looks like an economical load, but I find it to be very risky especially if you are having your reloads done by someone who does commercial reloading.:)

    310 is OK for .45 ACP due to case colume just don't doluble charge. A couple of guys tried 310s in their .40 vs 320s and there was no dofference.

    I use VV310 for my 9mm and 45 reloads. It comes out cheaper because of lesser grains you would need in the bullet.

    One pound of powder is equal to 7,000 grs. Ergo lesser grains in the bullet = more reloads.

    Lately, however, I shifted to VV320 for my 9mm loads because the chrono readings are more consistent. Plus there is no danger of bouble charging. A double charge will not go in the 9mm shell and overflow.

    But the VV310 is a very good powder. Shoots cleanly and gives more bang for your buck.
