What is Smokeless Powder Used for?
When compared to black powder, smokeless powder, commonly known as gunpowder, is a form of propellant used in firearms and artillery that produces less smoke and fouling when shot.
Who Makes Winchester 231?
W231 is a smokeless powder produced by General Dynamics at their St. Marks facility in Florida. Hodgdon Powder Company packages, distributes, and markets it under the Winchester brand name.
In January 2006, Hodgdon licensed the Winchester trademark, taking over all packaging and support obligations.
Is Winchester 231 the same as HP 38?
They are identical. I compared bottles of W231 and HP-38 purchased at the same time and found that they both had the same lot number.
However, I would not mix them. I’d just finish one and refill with the other because the old W231 and the new HP38 will almost certainly have different lot numbers.
