Shooters World Precision Rifle Smokeless Powder (1 lb or 8 lbs)

Shooters World Precision Rifle Smokeless Powder

Precision Rifle Smokeless Powder has a burn rate and temperature sensitivity very similar to Hodgdon® VARGET. Temperature sensitivity, burn rate and propellant density closely track with the same characteristics of VARGET.  However, our testing reveals that velocity variation at both ambient and extreme temperatures out-performs that of VARGET.  This characteristic should benefit those seeking superior accuracy in cartridges such as the 6.5 Creedmoor, 308 Winchester and 243 Winchester.

Those in the long-range game demand low velocity standard deviation, especially when they’re chasing group sizes beyond 1,000 yards. Competitive shooters in PRS Shooting demand Precision Powder.  Precision’s ignition characteristics, which contribute to low velocity standard deviation, should benefit those seeking superior accuracy.  In our tests from both a 6.5 Creedmoor and a .308 Winchester, Precision outperformed Varget in accuracy.

Precision Rifle has a burn rate that permits use in a wide range of centerfire rifle cartridges.

Despite Precision Rifle being an extruded propellant, we 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, we did not find that extra time necessary when loading for accuracy with this propellant.

Due to its cleanliness of burn and incorporated flash suppressant, there is virtually no muzzle flash with Precision Rifle.

Precision Rifle is a canister form of Explosia bulk and Lovex canister propellant S062.

You can view ballistic load data for Precision Rifle using both SAAMI and European CIP test methods and standards.

As with any propellant and load combination, a minor change to any of the components of the test load CAN result in significant shift in ballistic performance.  This shift can cause unintended high pressures, and result in injury or death. Therefore, Shooters World LLC, nor the manufacturer of this propellant take no responsibility for the intentional or unintentional misuse of this product.  The charge weights and results noted within are not recommended, either as a starting nor maximum load. They are shown merely as an indication of potential performance in one test load, shot by CIP standards.

  1. Cloverleaf kid

    Great powder, works for me in multiple calibers. I would use it over Varget any day. It meters better, doesn’t fill the case as much and is typically $10-15 cheaper per pound. Very good customer service also

  2. LLOYD H. (verified owner)

    Almost doubled in price since I bought it last but that’s how things are right now.

  3. Steven B. (verified owner)

    Decent price, wish I could have been allowed to buy more than 5 pounds but I understand why

  4. Jody W. (verified owner)

    Awesome powder! Meters well, temperature insensitive. I use this powder for a 6 BR mid range F-Class rifle & a 308 Win. In place of Varget powder
