Has anyone used this powder in the past? If so what caliber did you load with it? Where does it fall in on the burn rate chart? And how well did it work?

You won't find N205 on that list. You can find data in old books. N205 was discontinued decades ago. Norma's explanation was that they were having issues controlling burn rate of N205 and replaced it with MRP.

I used N205 in my 270 with 150gr partitions and 30-06 with 180gr partitions (don't recall the data, it was a LONG time ago). I still have a couple pounds of it. N205 is very temp sensitive and is a slow burning powder. It is #164 on this list:

I have an old SPEER reloading manual number 8 from 1970 and it lists the loadings for several calibers for N205. They range from 25/06 thru 30/06 and maybe a few other calibers. If you have specific calibers I could send you what the manual has.

I was hoping to use it up on praire dogs ,but a 25 or 30 06 is a little to big .whats the smallest caliber i use it in?
