I'm not sure if you'll get TR140 from Bisley other than at a 'Big Shoot'. Only Fulton's and NRA Office are there all the time. Try them and let us know.

I get mine from HPS but there are other suppliers, Dolphin Arms and Fox Firearms I think?

I was quoted £36 for carrier fees for 3 kg package of primers and powder!!!!!!

Hope this helps

Read the threads on .303
As I have previously stated on a .303 thread, TR140 is my powder of choice for .303 and .308. I find that TR140 outperforms N140 in both .303 and .308.

Steve, have you found as a percentage a common figure for the increase in grains of TR140 versus N140 to maintain MV's?
