It's supposed to be = to H-4350. The load it to different pressure standards - ole H-4350 loads were "CUP" and loaded to 52Kpsia, and the 100V is loaded using strain gauges and loaded to 62Kpsia.
They are not the same (there is no translation from CUP to Strain).
I think it would be necessary to test the two next to each other in the same gun.
They showed pictures of the grains and it looks like H-4350 that has "sagged" or melted. ;) ;)
I guess time will tell if it runs through measures better.
I think YOU should buy some, along with H-4350, and run a side by side test and report the results ;).
(What is happening with your 6.5 Gibbs??)
