    Jody, Just use the two lists as a very very rough guide, as in my testing with the powder lots I have used, I get very different results with some of the powders listed. I am pushed for time at the moment, but will illustrate later with some examples.

    Also, if you look closely at those 2 lists some powders vary dramatically. Vihtavouri N170 is a glaring example, being listed as faster burning than H1000 in one, and slower burning than H870 in the other. Regards, Brian.

    Google Rifle Powder Burn Rates. It will get you what you want from a lot of different sources.
