    Is there any charts that reveal what the rebranded names of ADI powders are? I just found out that my international clays is actually ADI AS50N. It would be useful.

    Veeeery interesting. So, ADI has it that w748 and H335 are identical, is this chart safe to completely switch and swap data? Red dot and clays are the same? (Without the dots I'm assuming)

    For Burning rate comparison only

    http://www.adi-powders.com.au/handloaders/equivalents.asp w748 and H335 are NOT identical.

    How can they claim "equivalent" and within 5% in the same breath?

    Seems reasonable to me.

    Since physical properties are never perfectly exact, even from lot to lot of the same powder...
    What sort of error term would you require for 'equivalent'?

    I guess to me equivalent means interchangeable. It's odd to me that this word would come from the mfg if its not in fact interchangeable. Still good to know I suppose!

    ADI is not the manufacturer of either Win 748 or H335 ... St Marks Powder Company in Florida is ...
