This chart is a "modified" best guess, from Western Powders main burn rate chart. We added Lovex and the new IMR powders. We can't confirm this is exact, but we think its ballpark. Different burn rate charts show the same powders in different order, so I think its somewhat confusing to as what powder burns faster than another. However, we can categorize them simply for 9MM caliber.
We did a comparo of the "fast" burning powders for 9MM. Remember this chart is just for quick idea of burn rate, it doesn't mean E3 from Alliant burns slower than HP-38 from Hodgdon, because I think E3 burns faster is our opinion. So look at this as ballpark. These in colored box are "fast" powders for 9MM.
In the larger BLACK box, is "all" powders you can use for 9MM generally. For example, you would not use Accurate #9 for 9MM, as it would fill the case far too much. It is too slow. Same thing with VV N105, etc.
Fast burning powders are often used for Power Factor ~130 shooting. Shooting plates. Recreational use too. They are generally more economical.
For example, Titegroup takes ~3.3 grains of powder in a 147 grain bullet generally. However, Blue dot a slow powder, takes about 5.6 grains to achieve same velocity. 5.6 grains would make ~1250 bullets with 1 pound.
5.6 grains would cost 1.6 cents per round if 1 lb was $20.
3.3 grains would cost .09 cents per round if 1 lb was $20
You shoot 10,000 rounds per year? That is $90 using the 3.3 grain powder, and $160 using the 5.6 grain powder. If both powders cost $20 each. That is $70 per year based on shooting 10,000 rounds per year. Its not that much...
