Re: SLOOW powders!!!

BRENT, thanx for the special effort. Has anyone else seen the relevant burning rate published for this same group as I know the burning rate of VV slowest two is 36 and 38 for what I presume is a difference of 1/18th difference???

Familiar to anybody?

Thanx

Some of us have powder that is 11 years old (or more) on the shelf.
I just bought a pound of rl25 at a lgs that said new on it; rl25 was new 'roundabouts '04.

Yep. Still got 5 cans, same lot, of the old WINCHESTER WMR that ain't even on the current Winchester burn list. Got it in 1992 and used 54.5gr in my 270 for the 140gr Black Talons. Them were the days......Government did not lie as much back then...LOL.

Can anyone help?

Thanx
Randy.....looks like most of your questions have been answered, so forgive me if this has already been covered. H570 is long gone and was an extruded powder with the same burning rate as H870, a ball powder, which was also discontinued a few years ago by Hodgdon. It is still available as military surplus and is marketed by Thunderbird cartridge co. in Az., under the name T870. It is a very good powder in the big magnums giving good accuracy, and top velocities in many cases. It is a pretty dirty powder; however. Hope this helps.......Rich
