Originally developed for 7.6251 NATO M80 Ball, Vihtavuori’s N135 is now used for a wide range of calibers, from.222 Remington to.458 Winchester Magnum. The N135 is a tubular powder type with grain dimensions of 1,0 mm length and 0,8 mm diameter.
It is used in a variety of applications. On the scale of rifle powders, the burn rate is considered to be medium. Interesting fact: Although the grain dimensions of N135, N133, and N130 are identical, the burning behavior of the powders differs due to the different surface coatings applied to the powders. N135 is primarily used by medium game hunters and long-range target shooters, but it is also used by others.
