I know we have extruded, ball, and flake powders out there...But is there any type of chart that shows which powders are single based and which are double based in composition...??

Maybe we could put together some sort of chart here at Reloadersnest along side the burn rate to show powder composition...

Just a thought.....

Accurate powder manuals do list their powders as single base or double base, and include how much nitroglycerin is in the mix.
IIRC, IMR used to designate whether single or double base.

Alliant lists the powder ingredients on the cannister label. The Hodgden and IMR powders I have do not. But they may be listed on the websites.or they may provide the information if asked. Sounds like a reasonable idea Curly. The more info we have the better.

So many different rifles,so little time

That info could be included on the burn rate chart beside each powder.

I would love to know/see the burn-rate sequence in order, it would really help to know if this powder burns faster then that powder and so on. I think I might look into a a list like that. Jason

Jmears.... If you click on home then go the the left side and scroll down from were you clicked on forum, there is a powder burn rate that you can click on that tells just that.

Powder Profiles give not only that data but much more. Often it includes some ingredients, percentage of nitroglycerine, etc.
