Powder Question? Hogdon's now owns Winchester powder. I noticed that Hodgon gives the exact same load date for W231 as HP-38, in every bullet weight in every caliber shown. Some other forums say they are the exact same powder just placed in 2 different containers.The data from Hogdon suggests this is the case but my Lee reloading book shows different loads for the 2. Which data do you go with Hogdon or Lee? Was wondering because I can't get W231 locally but I can get HP-38.

I generally use the Lee recommended loads as a last resort. I try to use the manufacturer's load data before anything else.

I have been in touch with the factory directly. Winchester 231 and Hodgdon HP-38 are the exact same powder. Any load you find published for one can safely be used with the other.

Thanks for the feedback. HP-38 will be the 1st powder I try then.
