Burn Rate Chart.

More than 260 powders listed from fast to slow.

The chart of relative quickness of powders below is intended as a guideline only. Powders within three lines of one another are similar in relative quickness but cannot be directly substituted without due regard for safe reloading procedures.

Powders printed in blue are believed to be close to the correct relative position in the chart. Powders printed in green are no longer manufactured and powders in red are not yet reliably placed in position on the chart. Their positions may still change.

Your help in refining this chart and updating it as a resource for all to use will be appreciated. If you hold the opinion that a powder needs to be moved by more than two lines, or find an incorrect powder name, please let us know. We will appreciate information to finally place the powders printed in red and powder manufacturers not yet on the chart.

Thanks to all who have contributed their knowledge in developing the chart. A special acknowledgement to Pierre Van Der Walt, members of the Accurate Reloading Forum and all who e-mail their experience from time to time.

GS Custom Bullets, situated in Port Elizabeth on the East Coast of South Africa, manufactures solid copper, turned, monolithic bullets for hunting and sport shooting. These bullets are used by hunters on several continents, hunting from the smallest of antelope to the largest of dangerous game, using the smooth HP bullet, as well as the more popular HV, FN and SP bullets with the patented drive band concept. GSC bullets are configured for the highest possible ballistic coefficients. SP bullets are mainly used for sport shooting. All GS Custom Bullets are moly coated.
