    Powder Names

    Is there a table/chart which shows which powders are the same with just different names from different companies?

    I'm not talking about burn rate, there are burn rate charts everywhere (almost).

    I've heard H-110 is the same as Winchester 296, H-414 is the same as Winchester 748, and several more.

    It might be nice to know when A = B or X = Y, and when A does not = A.

    Thanks.

    That is incorrect. H414 is the same powder as Win 760.

    And how about such a chart for box spring mattresses?

    Thanks Joe S.

    Thought there would be something like that somewhere.

    Lest someone thinks I'm new at this game, I reloaded my first 30/06 round in about 1964 with a Lee loader in a dorm room at a college which shall remain unnamed.

    The powders I`ve listed are the same powders except for name and any differences are due only to "lot" variation. There was another slightly expanded chart listing "same" powders out there somewhere at one time, but where I can`t recall.

    Must have been close to the school where I was. Except it was a .22-250.
