Precision Rifle propellant 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, testing reveals that velocity variation at both ambient and extreme temperatures out-performs that of VARGET. This characteristic should benefit those seeking superior 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, it provides good flow characteristics through a volumetric powder dump. The grain is narrow, and cut short. While some reloaders insist on weighing each powder charge, that extra time is generally not 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.
