Has anyone tried this? I bought some loaded Berger ammo and I just assumed it was Vihtavouri. Your thoughts are appreciated.

VVN 550 works like a charm, at least with the 123 and 130 gr bullets I have tried in my JP LRP-07. Groups in the .2s and .3s. Single diget SD and mid to high 2700s for velocity with a 22" barrel. Best powder I have tried so far for this rifle.

And looking at the burn charts I wasn't sure if 150 or 550 would be better. Thanks for the info

I use N550 with my 6.5 creedmoor. I'm using lapua brass and berger 135gr classic hunter bullets. The groups are .5 moa or less with low SD's at 41.4 grains. My barrel is 26" long, and I'm getting 2890 fps muzzle velocity. I can push them harder with no pressure signs, but this was a nice accuracy load with very little stress on my brass.
