If you are talking about Norme MRP, burn rate charts put it right between H4831 and Reloader 22. Somewhat slower than IMR4350. Norma 204 is about the closest you can get to IMR4350. It sits between IMR 4350 and Reloader 19. RD

nail, Sorry I don't use it. I just like to help people with questions and have links to burn rate charts etc. So I looked it up for you. No first hand experience with this one. RD

OK,first off, I have never used Norma's MRP. It was a big favorite of the late Bob Hagel though and he worked up some very way over the loading manuals loads with the stuff. He did register one serious complaint that the burning rate varied considerably from lot to lot. The slower lots gave him some fantastic velocities but the faster lots gave unpleasant surprises.

He's been dead for some time now and maybe Norma has squared that problem away. It was considered a good powder other that the variable burn rate by Hagel and some other writers although it was Hagel that used it most of all.

If you like the powder, make sure you get a decent supply with all having the same lot number. If you don't, it would be wise to do the load work up once more, starting from scratch.

Paul B.
