Im getting ready to buy a lot of N133 from 2003. There's a bunch of it, was this powder
worth a hoot ? I would hate to make a 500 dollar mistake again,, thats why im asking.

Can't answer about the powder. I just have a quick question. Are you the guy I bugged for about a year at Hart to make the 18" twist barrel? I remember I used to supply you with recoil lugs that I made from 17-4 stainless for the Marine sniper rifles.

Yep, 683-03 is what I have gone back to, I am down to about 40 pounds. What lot # is this 03?? If you do not want it all, I might go in with you.

There is nothing particuarilly special about 03, it is just what I have had the best success with through the years.

Does the 03 indicate the year it was made? I assume so but i wasnt sure. I have a bunch of 08 and it works quite well. How is the current lot of N133 performing, is there that much difference? Just curious! Lee
