Burn Rates.

Hello all fellow keen loaders!

I hope this isn't a stupid question;
Does anyone know how to find out the absolute optimum burn rate for max MV for a given cartridge/barrel length/bullet weight with out testing all the likely ones methodically? That would take a bloody long time and a lot of $!

Cheers guys

Pretty sure QuickLoad will do what you want....


You should also have a copy of Hodgdon's burn rate chart...

I'm not gonna shoot here. I'm gonna shoot waaaaaaaay over there!
