Folks, I have a problem.
Two pounds of Vhitavouri Oy N550 and not a jot nor tittle of loading information.

Can someone tell me the bottom and top loads for:
.30-06 in 165 grain and 200 grain bullets, and
6.5x55 in 140 and 160 grain bullets.

I'll buy the dang book, but want to get started now.

Thanks.

I can only find this in my VihtaVuori reloading guide

6.5x55
140gr HPBT Sierra oal: 3.091
starting at 37.1gr for 2292 FPS
max at 40.7gr for 2540 FPS

160gr no listing for that powder

.30-06
167gr SCENAR Lapua oal: 3.307
starting at 49.6 for 2556 FPS
max at 55.0gr for 2806 FPS

200gr no listing for that powder

your can call Kaltron-Pettibone (800) 683-0464 and get a free 60 page copy of the VihtaVuori reloading guide. I hope this info will help you.

Thank you both...
I just spoke with very cheerful and helpful lady at K-P who is sending me info.
BK, thanks for the website, but the information they have is for the N100 series.

Here's hoping they have information in the mail out regarding heavier bullet loads. What the heck is slow powder if'n you can't shoot heavy bullets?
