Ozzies are very fond of ADI Powders (Australian Defense Industries) It brought into the States as Hodgson.

The problem in Scandinavia is that the import of IMR and Hodgson powders is erratic at best.

There is some use in the load data though...we can interpolate to Norma and Vitavuori powders..

The Norma N4 is what I have used in my .475 NE thus far..

There is load data for the 475NE in the Woodleigh loading manual.
One of the powders is a Vihtavuori powder.

Graeme Wright's book also has a few loads for the 475NE, but noting the Woodleigh book hasn't got.

I haven't had a chance to really have a good look at the Woodleigh Manual as yet. Just a quick glance at a few things I have wanted to check, but from what I have seen it's a well put together manual.
Well worth adding to your collection.

looks like you can now get the manual at MidwayUSA so you don't need to order from Aussy land any more.

Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
