quoted text from a post in the canister and surplus powder forum over at cast boolits

it does address a issue w/ updated powder formulas

Another hole created as of late is the movement of RL7, initially a 5 percent nitroglycerin content and now a 10 percenter. The speed of the initial version was a very fast 3031, and the current version is very close to 4198. That is a significant difference for the 30-30 capacity case. The advantage of the movement is that now RL7 can be used in the straight wall pistol cases, and is about 3 grains within WW680 which is going by the wayside


the charts found at the links help to get a idea of burn rate/speed, but for most reloaders they mean little
