    NobelSport Powder

    I just inherited about 15 pounds of Nobel Sport Powder. Most of the containers are sealed ( on the label it says AO).

    This powder was made in France, anybody have any information on this powder. I also have a 8lb keg (opened) of SP2 which is made by the same manufacture.

    Woul really like some recipes on this stuff. Thanks in advanced

    It's my understanding that these powder have been out of production for some time. None of my older manuals list loads for them and I am unaware of any current editions that do, either. I just ran a check on Google and didn't find anything.

    The cans are actually plastic and look like Accurate cans. The manufacture I believe is VECTAN. They were stored well and are sealed. I would be highly interested in obtaining any reloading data at all on these. I found data in a PDF from another forum but its written in French. NO SPEAKO EL FRENCHO.

    Heres what I found. http://www.balleurope.com/recharge/p....php?langue=en

    Granted I would really like not to kill myself.

    Considering that the data sheet in the link is effectively bi-lingual, It looks like you have your maximum loads. All of them look like max pressure loads.

    On the sides of the plastic containers it says made in France.

    Here is a link I found to some reloading data for vectan powders. Hope this helps.

    It looks like the SP2 is a pretty universal powder, but the AO is only shown for 38 spec, or 40 cal. in pistols.

    Good luck.

    BTW, I would start out with prety light loads, but we can assume your going to do that anyway, right?
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Honestly, I think if you work it up, you can probably develop some loads for the AO stuff by being careful and working your way up to find a target load for just about any caliber you might have.

    A Chronograph, and checking for pressure signs would be in order, but it looks like you might have saved yourself some cash. Hope you have primers.
