I'm here looking for answers on a very specific question. My question for anyone who has experience with Vihtavuori Tin Star is, does it burns clean and is ok to use in sealed suppressors? I am interested in using it in to develop a subsonic load for my 45 Raptor Rem 700 SBR, pushing custom made 500gn .452 bullets from Outlaw State. Tin Star was the powder recommended by Arne Brennan, the guy who developed 45 Raptor, as it's quite bulky and will give a good charge density and it'll get a full burn in my 12" barrel. The suppressor I'm going to be using is a Crux ARC, which is an all titanium se

Reliability and consistency are the 2 most important criteria followed by reduced felt recoil produced by the powder/bullet combo and finally I need enough accuracy to shoot a 6inch to man sized target 20-25 yards freehand (IDPA).

Reduced noise and muzzle flash and temperature (cold) resistant powders (falls under reliability) are bonuses I'd be willing to pay more for. Constant Variables: -I plan on using 124gr Montana Gold CMJ (which I believe are electroplated). That is about the best I can find as far as bullets go t
