Powder Availability: N110 and N120
propellants have been popular choices for the Savage 10ML muzzleloaders
for over a decade by now. For many years, the comment has been that
they are "twice as expensive" than other powders.
This has never been the case. The confusion has stems from the standard
2 lb. packaging of Vihtavuori N110 and N120, so yes . . . that a
two pound bottle costing more than a one pound bottle shouldn't
be a surprise.
N110 has been a standard Savage test load, along with a 250 grain
.452 Hornady XTP and short, black "MMP" sabot for years.
40 - 42 grains is usually optimum. You get about 175 shots per one
pound bottle of N110, making it far more economical than you might
think. You get significantly more velocity than "three pellet
loads" (33 shots per box is all you get per box of pellets)
at a fraction of the cost with no corrosiveness of pellets, or fouling
standard packaging of N110 and N120 is a one pound bottle. This
too has led to a bit of confusion, as some catalog houses have listed
N110 and N120 as "Discontinued by Manufacturer."
Never true, it was the two pound packaging that was discontinued,
not the powder. N110 is readily available right now and has been
for a long while.
has become more and more popular, so much so that it sells out very
quickly. It is sold out right now, with a larger shipment due in
September. So, if you want some, you might as well get some on order
direct with the importer.
