Powder Info Resource

  • http://www.ilrc.ucf.edu/powders/index.php

    Pretty much anything and everything you'd want to know about powder. Fantastic resource for determining if a powder is stick, ball, or what not. You can browse through them, or do a targeted search. Shows everything... including a hi-res picture of each powder. Good stuff!

    Burn Rate Chart - https://www.hodgdon.com/PDF/Burn Rates - 2015-2016.pdf

    Just a quick reminder that "burn rate" charts seldom agree. They are a rough guide, but not much more than that. The pressure curve each powder creates is specific to the cartridge, components, chamber, and barrel... among other things. Don't get fooled into thinking you can make precise powder choices by glancing at the above chart. Real testing is the only thing that will show you what will work and what will not.
