Powder Burning Rate Chart


(Chart is Courtesy of Hodgdon Powder Company) These burning rates are relative and can differ from one cartridge to another and even from bullet weight in the same cartridge. They are not all the same type of powder (i.e. double-base or single-base) and should not be used as a loading guide. It is just to show you the comparison between types and brands to each other. Do not substitute one powder for another without checking the loading information for the powder you plan to use.
