No. Too expensive and hard to find/get in large quantity.

Any of the 500 series of powders (N5XX) are a double base powder. Meaning, temp swings and temp sensitive. They will get you good velocity, kind of like what R17 will do. I know shooters that run their powders (N1XX series) with great success. But for what I do, they are not for me.

Ive never used it either. x2 on cost and availability. Though I have noticed more stores carrying the brand.

VV 320, 330, and 340 are very good for 45 ACP and burn cleanly.

Lots of guys run Vhit in Open guns in USPSA, but I never have, for all the reasons above.

I ran the N560 in my 280 Rem until Reloder 26 hit the shelves. Gave top speeds and good accuracy and all Vit powders burn very clean from my experience.
I just switched my 28 Nosler from Reloder 33 to N570 as it seems to be less temp sensitive in hot weather.

N150 is one of the best powders I have found for 30-06 loads

I use N133 in bolt guns for 223 if I want top velocity in the 50-55gr bullet weight range.

In the 22 Nosler N 530 gave me highest velocity

I use N320 for 3Gun 9mm loads

I use N-165. Very consistent powder. Cleanest burning of any powder I have loaded as well. That is my only experience with VV powder.

I use n135 in a 22br. This combination is very accurate.

VV133 was to go-to powder for the 6PPC back in the Day of Bench Rest.
Works well in the 223 too!

I use N135 in my 6PPC, and it is excellent. While expensive, with the small capacity cases like the 22's an 6's, a pound will last a long time! And, like a fine wine, it seems to age well.

I have found all the 100 series powders to be excellent and worth the extra money I also feel they burn quite a bit cleaner, 160 and 165 are two of the coolest burning powders out there today.

I used it it the 22 CM and it worked well but not as well as Reloader 26.
