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

    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.

    MRP 2 and Western's Grizz are the two main ones I need to know where they fit. Anyone

    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.
