IMR 4064 vs Accurate 4064

Does anyone know if there is a difference between these two powders? Other than the obvious "they're made by different companies" .

Shouldn't that be enough?

There really is no way for them to be truly identical. While I have not done the specific comparison you mention I have done several with IMR vs Hodgdon and there can be some pretty substantial differences.

The best bet is to use data for the specific powder.

Accurate is slower according to them.

I have got some very good results with accurate 4064 and 175 gr SMKs. Had to load it pretty stoutly to get my velocity though. .1 gr at a time with a chrono.

Accurate has been much cleaner burning for me and meters like a dream in comparison to IMR. It has also taken less powder to get desired velocities so a pound goes further. I like how easy it is to get every grain out of the Accurate container as opposed to the IMR can.

You're right about the IMR can and I have it on good authority that Hodgdon will start putting it in plastic bottles- probably when they run out of the inventory of steel cans. They are going to maintain the same color scheme on the labels. That helps with identification.

Haven't used the AA 4064, but burn charts I've seen seem to have it much slower than IMR 4064.

AA 4064

I stopped buying AA 4064. The lots varied wildly. It is made in Israel or the Czech Republic. I had good luck with one jug and bad luck with the next. IMR 4064 is a very good product and I 'll stick with ti.
