Aren't Hodgdon, Winchester, and IMR all the same company, and produced in the same factory now?I have a number of "One Book One Caliber" loading books but they don't include the latest powders or bullets. They are good reference manuals and I hang on to all my older manuals for that reason.
Years ago I switched to only Hodgdon powders because while they add new powders they rarely delete any older powders. Winchester was infamous for deleting and replacing powders for no apparent good reason and I tired of it quickly. With Hodgdon I can use the oldest powders like HP-38 and H4895 and the latest powders like TiteGroup and CFE or LongShot and Suprform.
