Sorry Six I don't have any Engineer Manual available. My specialty is ordnance items. I can tell you my platoon used it a few times in country to blow up a few UXO. I don't remember the burn rate but it was something like 20,000 ft per second. The main problem I remember is you can't be shy with packing the C4 (or C3, we had some of that too when I was in). If the C4 is not packed tight enough there is a risk of the det cord blowing the material apart without detonation.
