What information is shown on a comparison burn rate chart?

It shows what equivalent powders to the one you may already use are in the different makes available. The chart names popular brands of reloading powder across the top and lists the varieties of powder available in each brand below. By scanning the row from left to right, you are able to see which are the nearest brands to the powder you already use.

Please note that burn rate charts can never reflect the differences between powders in the correct proportion, and can only place powders in approximate burn rate envelopes.
