    Does anyone have a chart showing rough equivilencies in burning rate for this line of powders. I bought a can for something earlier and it didn't work out. Now I would like to see if I have a use for Big Boy.

    The company rep was too chicken to go there unless you had a .308. Guess his lawyers are too tough for them to succeed in this business!

    Use this link to get a good burn rate chart. http://www.steyrscout.org/burnrate.htm

    I don't agree with their placement of Big Boy/Magnum but this could be due to particular batches or lots. I have Big Boy as being faster than V V N-170 and slower than Re-25. Maybe my lot of Re-25 is faster than their test lot, I would guess.

    I use the Big Boy in .300 WBY, .270 WBY, .264 Win. Mag. with heavier bullets and in the .300 RUM with lighter bullets.

    Anyway, enjoy the list. It's also part of a very informative site.
