Vihtavuori N165 is a universal powder for magnum rifle calibers with heavy bullets. It works especially well in .338 Lapua Magnum with 250 gr bullets, but can be used with long range of calibers ranging from 6,5×55 SE all the way to .416 Rigby.
The N165 powder grains are exactly the same size (1,3 mm length x 1,0 mm diameter) as those of its “big brother” N160, but the surface coating creates the difference in burning characteristics.
N165 is a very slow burning powder, making it a superior choice for the same range of cartridges as N160 when using heavier bullets. As slightly higher velocities can be achieved with N165, it is an excellent choice for long-range shooting and big game hunting.
