Slowest burning powderws

Cant find something available before on this forum...the relative burning rates of powders starting with
RE25 and going to VV29N41. Need to see where MRP-2 and VV170 and the rumored Western Powder coming known as Grizz.

thanx

Re: Slowest burning powderws

Randy the new VIHTAVUORI OY BOOKLET 1-96 that I just got shows:

103. N170
104. H1000
105. H870
106. 24N41
107. 20N29

You can contact:KARLTON PETTIBONE,1241 ELLIS ST, BENSENVILLE,IL. 60106 phone 708-350-1116.

The last list that Crow Mag posted (The basics, starting out >> .388 Lapua Mag pg.2, 1-31-03) shows:

97. RELOADER 25
98. RETUMBO
99. AA 8700
100. H870
101. 24N41
102. H50BMG
103.20N29

A difference in numbering but at least 20N29 still seems to be the slowest of all, hope this helps a little bit.

Re: Slowest burning powderws

Randy, in my 308 Baer, MRP2 is approx. 2gr. slower than RL25 if I`m not mistaken, without looking into my reloading data. Sorry, I have never tried the Grizz.
