Shooters World Buffalo Rifle
This propellant has a burn rate optimized for straight walled rifle cartridges, as well as reduced recoil/reduced energy loads in virtually all rifle applications. Chambers where the bullet diameter is virtually the same as the internal case diameter, such as .38-55 Winchester, .45-70 Gov't and numerous Schuetzen calibers, will benefit from Buffalo Rifle. The standard test load for this propellant is .30-06 Springfield, a 168 grain bullet, and ONLY 22 grains of propellant. This loading density is less than 50%! Yet this propellant burns extremely well in this condition. Whether the loader desires to shoot cast lead or standard jacketed bullets, this propellant can greatly expand the utility of a hunting rifle. Now, a .30-06 can be used for plinking with the kids! Or a .243 for rabbit hunting! Safe, reduced loads can be economically loaded and enjoyed by the whole family. The surface of this propellant holds no deterrent or burn rate modifier. Therefore, it ignites quite consistently with low loading densities in standard rifle loads. This same ignition characteristic aids accuracy when used with cast lead bullets and long throated chambers. Despite Buffalo Rifle being an extruded propellant, Shooters World have found good flow characteristics through a volumetric powder dump. The grain is narrow, and cut short. While some reloaders insist on weighing each powder charge, Shooters World did not find that extra time necessary when loading this propellant.
Shooters World Heavy Pistol
Shooters World: Ballistic results for the heavy pistol propellant show it appropriate for magnum pistol applications, .300 Blackout with lightweight projectiles and some other specialty ammunition. It is similar in burn speed to Accurate No 9 , and has similar application as Alliant 2400, Hodgdon H110 or Winchester 296. The superior ignition of this propellant permits less-than-full loading density. Therefore, it is not necessary to load 'full power' loads with this propellant in order to achieve safe results. Shooters World tests this propellant with standard pistol primers, as well as magnum pistol primers. To date, Shooters World have found no evidence that Heavy Pistol requires a magnum primer for reliable ignition. In comparison to other magnum pistol propellants, Shooters World find Heavy Pistol exceptionally clean, accurate with either cast or jacketed projectiles, and exhibiting low muzzle flash. A spherical propellant, it meters through charge plates consistently and will flow well in a high-speed loader.
Shooters World Major Pistol
This propellant is a canister form of Lovex D037.1 reloading propellant. It is similar in burn speed to ACCURATE No. 7, 2400 and Blue Dot. The gas generation rate is appropriate for cartridges of the 9mm and 10mm Auto, .357 SIG, .45 Colt, .410 Shot shell, light-bullet magnum pistol loads, and other high intensity pistol cartridges. It is especially good for short barrel magnum revolvers, where complete combustion, high velocity and low muzzle flash are desired. It is also possible to achieve extremely high velocities in 9mm Luger with Major Pistol. It does contain a level of flash suppression, incorporated into the propellant. A spherical propellant, it meters through charge plates consistently and will work with high-speed loaders with very good flow. It does contain a level of flash suppressant.

Vihtavuori's 3N37 handgun powder was originally developed for .22 rimfire cartridges, but has since proven to be very versatile and desirable within all competitive handgun shooting disciplines. The 3N37 is tubular, porous powder type with grain dimensions of 0,6 mm length and 0,6 mm diameter. The symmetrical grain size makes metering a breeze in powder measures. The burning rate of the 3N37 is close to N350 and on the medium scale of Vihtavuori's handgun powders. This is an excellent powder for 9 mm major loads for IPSC open competitions and it's very popular in USPSA and IPSC practical pistol shooting disciplines. In addition to practical shooting, 3N37 is also widely used as a submachine gun powder. As all of Vihtavuori's powders, 3N37 offers consistent, extreme precision, with clean burning - and that is why it is used by the best shooters in the world. Interesting fact: 3N37 was used back in the 1940's by Sako for loading 9mm submachine gun cartridges.
Vihtavuori's 3N38 powder is designed especially for competitive handgun shooting with high-velocity loads in 9 mm and .40 S&W cartridges. It's a single-based, tubular powder type, and one of Vihtavuori's small granule powders (0,6 mm length x 0,6 mm diameter). The 3N38 is a popular powder for practical shooting especially among IPSC and USPSA shooters. A relatively slow-burning powder, 3N38 is a perfect choice for making Major loads with good accuracy and clean-burning characteristics, for which Vihtavuori is renowned.
N105 Super Magnum is Vihtavuori's slowest burning pistol powder, intended for the most powerful handgun cartridges in use today, particularly with heavy bullets and/or large case volume. Many of these specialized rounds operate at rifle pressures. Delivering this type of shooting performance is precisely what prompted the development of N105. For such powerhouse calibers as the .454 Casull or .500 S&W, N105 is an excellent reloading powder choice.
