ABSTRACT
The author evaluates the smokeless, high-energy gun powder which is guaranteed to increase velocities without creating undue pressures. He recalls the first time hearing the term high-energy powders after the introduction of the VihtaVuori line of powders, the W 100 and 200 series. He cites some cartridges and loadings which produced impressive ballistics including the .375 Ruger, the Ruger Compact Magnums and the Marlin Express rounds.
