French PNF2 powder velocities?
« on: March 31, 2018, 08:52:06 AM »
Good afternoon, everyone. I have some PNF2 to use with my Remington. I previously thought PNF2 was stronger than GOEX, because the granulation is equivalent to 4FG, but i've heard some french people say that it's actually a very weak powder. A few months ago I did an experiment in which a max charge of PNF2 pushed a round ball clean through 3 wood boards and smashed my concrete wal behind them to bits, but that doesn't tell me the actual velocity of the projectile. Does anyone have experience with PNF2?

I am not positive, but I don't think that powder is readily available here. At least, I have never seen it. This is from a search:

I doubt you could get that in America. It is made by Dynamit Nobel or Nobel Sport as now is in France. Widely distributed throughout Europe very popular too, including all of the VECTAN smokeless powders. I have never used the Vectan BP but the smokeless powders are excellent.

I think SWISS BP is your only option in Portugal or Spain for "alto velocidad". My Triple 7 supply is dwindling rapidly I am trying to find a way to get some more from the U.K.

A chronograph is not not terribly expensive these days, and it is good to have one even it's not used more than a few times per year.
But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.   James 1:25 (KJV)

So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.   James 2:12. (KJV)

@NE.
Do you know if we´re allowed to send explosives as any other commodity within the EEC? In that case i´d be happy to help you out brother.
We do get T7 up here,so no issues with that.

Thanks very much for the thought and the offer. In short I don't know the answer to that. I know for a fact transporting it by car, personal transport within the E.U is no problem because I have done it. Sending it by courier........................Don't know ?

Funny thing was I went into a gun shop in France who specialises in BP guns. When I told him I had some T7 in the car he immediately offered me a two for one swap. Two containers of Swiss BP for a container of T7 because it's not available in France either !

When you come to Spain do you drive ?
