Have a look at the burn rate chart I attached and please tell me where there appear to be gaps that need filled between two burn rates.

The closest thing to what you are referring to is called a duplex load using a small amount of a fast powder at the flash hole to assist the ignition of a sloooow powder. It is uncommon, and considerably dangerous unless you know exactly what you are doing. Mixing powders is a BAD idea.
