  3. They changed the name to "discontinued."

    Do you have a supply and need data or did old data just look good to you?

    The closest thing to WSL seems to be Titegroup and Ramshot Silhouette is close to WAP if not identical.

  4. Yes, According to Johan Loubser at Western Powders, Ramshot Silhouette is the exact same powder as WAP +/- a few new coatings to reduce flash. According to Johan, data is interchangeable, but it's best to use newer Silhouette data.
  5. Thanks for the quick replies. I was just trying to find out what it was because it was in my loadbooks USA.
  6. SOme of the older manuals have data for them, why I never throw them away. What caliber?

    Winchester brand powders are St Marks Powders and share the same nomenclature for the numbered Winchester powders, ie W231 is SMP #231. I'm compiling a chart of all the commercial and non-canister powder types for reference.

    WAP is identical in character to Ramshot Silhouette and data will interchange. The Silhouette has additional flash reducers blended, but does not change the burn characteristics. I'm trying to track down the OEM non-canister nomenclature for this one.

    Auto Comp is #224
    Titegroup is #242
    Lil' Gun is OBP516
    W760 is #760 also sold as H414
    W748 is #748
    WSF is WSX170
    HS6 is #540 also sold as W540
    HS7 is #571 also sold as W571 and reformulated to be Longshot which is now called OBP473
    WST is WAA90
