Is quick drying concrete as strong as regular concrete?

Right now i make weights out of concrete but it takes 3 days to fully harden. Could i use quick drying concrete instead? Can i take it out after 24 hours? And is it just as strong as regular concrete?

I hope you guys can help me with this. Thank you!

Look at the specs for the product you are considering. Here is a chart from Quikrete that will give you an idea.

I had a floor lamp that kept tipping. I replaced the base with a thicker piece of concrete using the inside of the original base as a stay in place form. I added some lead shot to the mix. It stays put now.
