    Nobel Vectan powder

    Got my order of AS and A1 today ordered 4 of each, ended up $17 a #. Strange color A1 green AS green and orange flake (small) ran off the load Manuel on Graf's site. Will load when it warms up.

    If anyone orders powder from Grafs, try some Vectan AO, I've been using 12.5gr and .311299 bullet in an 03A3 and it is very accurate.

    French load data isn’t cool. They don’t like to put the OAL in it.

    I use BA 9 and BA 10. I especially like the BA 10 in the 45 acp. 3.7 gr with 230 gr cast. Very clean, and makes IPSC major power factor. I agree the load data provided by Nobel Sport Vectan is pretty crappy. Not much supporting data, such as OAL, primer, case, barrel length, etc. I think the data listed, might be a little on the conservative side. I have not yet found any outside published data, outside of the Lee manual, which I believe is just some reprinted Vectan data.

    I found that BA-9 is pretty close to Unique. I find that 13-15 grains in old military calibers is great up to 100 yards.

    BA 6.5 is close to Winchester 296 powder though it seems to take up more of the case. I have used it in 30 Carbine and 300 Blackout.

    TU3000 is basically the French Version of H4895. I have had great luck replicating 30-06 Ball M-2 with it for the Garand.

    I've used the A1 in .45 ACP. It's good stuff. I really need to try some of the other stuff.
