Conversion table (Loads per pound of powder)

Post by Sierrareloader on Mon Mar 07, 2011 9:54 pm

Grains of Powder Number of Loads
5 Grains 1400
10 Grains 700
15 Grains 466
20 Grains 350
25 Grains 280
30 Grains 233
35 Grains 200
40 Grains 175
45 Grains 155
50 Grains 140
55 Grains 127
60 Grains 116
65 Grains 107
70 Grains 100
75 Grains 93
80 Grains 87
85 Grains 82
90 Grains 77
95 Grains 73
100 Grains 70

Just some need to know info on trying to estimate how much powder for # of loads... So for 300 cartridges of M1 Garand (30-06) using 168 gr hornady BTHP with 45 grains of IMR 4895 will require 2lbs/2 (1lbs) bottles of the stuff.

good quick chart.

if any newbie wants to know the formula, there is 7,000 grains of powder in a # of powder. divide 7,000 by the load charge weight and you can see how many rounds per # of powder.

You are right on the money...I used almost exactly 2lbs(give or take a few rounds) of h4895 to load 300 rounds of 30-06 using 168gr smk's with a 46gr load.
