    This might be interesting to some. I emailed Hodgdon and Alliant a few weeks ago asking if they could send me a chart showing the flame temp for their powders.

    HOdgdon responded the quickest but just told me that all powders burn between 2800 and 3200 Kelvin.


    ALliant got back to me today and gave me this:

    Kelvin

    bullseye-3740
    red dot-3433
    green dot-3391
    unique-3379
    herco-3486
    blue dot-3312
    2400-3214
    RL7-2859
    RL15-3015
    RL19-3113
    RL22-2964
