Does anyone have or know where to go to see a Propellant Burn Rate Chart with Alliant BE-86 on it? I'm looking, looking, looking.

It's also not a propellant option in QuickLOAD. Hmmmm.

I am a tad skeptical about this load on the Alliant page. 11.8 grains with a 240gr pill? Seems high to me based on other BE-86 loadings.

 

 

With rifle in hand, I confidently go forth into the darkness.

Looks like the one I have off of Hodgdons website. I hope you like BE-86 I was not real impressed with it just my opinion.

Just using up the last of it. I'll pull those 9 cartridges down and use Unique or 2400. I am concerned the 11gr is a tad warm. I bought the BE-86 in the last freak-out when powder was unavailable. It was there. Used almost all of it in 38 SPL and such. It's OK. not a "go-to" powder for me but I have some left.
