Here is a burn rate chart. HS-6 is 35 and TITEGROUP is 10 on the list. Burn Rate
Red Hat is right. I just heard that yesterday at the range. For example, if I were to and have loaded 9mm, I was told not to use Bullseye because it does not burn quite fast enough. He told me to try Hodgedon Universal or Clays. Because 9mm's are a high pressure round. Another rule is for 9mm dont use Blue Dot or 2400. Reserve those two for Magnum Loads
