Vitha Vouri powder

Hi guys, does anyone use VV powder for reloading .44, if so I'm looking for some info on how much you use, I've checked out the VV website and think I've found the starting weight for N32c at 7.7 grains, up to 9.3. The info on their site seems a bit vague, well to me anyway. So if anyone uses this can you tell me how much you use. I normally use Titegroup but my local shop only had VV so I thought I'd try it. Info for 357 would be appreciated to. Thanks in anticipation . Chris

Need to know what style and weight bullet you are using.

I've never seen the powder brand here in South Texas, but I might be able to help you a bit with it. VihtaVouri 32C is the renamed Tin Star. It is similar to Hodgdon's Trail Boss, which are low pressure and velocity cowboy action powders. They are bulky powders to fill the case and burn clean, a great alternative to black powder. I wouldn't overthink either of these powders. In fact, Hodgdon has a PDF sheet (attached) on how to determine TB loads if there is none available.

You have probably seen the VV32C data from their website.

I would take the bullet that I'm going to use and follow Hodgdon's instructions about marking, filling to the mark, measuring, and then the math to see where the numbers sit against the VV data.

I have used VV powders in a number of handgun calibres. For awhile I used N340 almost exclusively for 9mm but it got a bit expensive. I have not used their cowboy action powder VV32C (Tin Star) but have used a lot of Trail Boss for both rifle and revolver loads. Loads for lead bullets for 357Mag and I assume you mean 44 Special are available for a variety of bullet weights. If your bullet weight is not covered but a heavier weight is then use that as a starter and work up.
