I also have a jug of DP 85. I also have a couple of 8 ponders of Hunter. I can tell you for a fact that DP 85 and Hunter are NOT the same powder. The only similarities are load data and ball type. I have tested DP 85 side by side against Hunter and they are not even close, not in velocity and not in accuracy.

After I purchased DP 85 I called Accurate and asked if it was indeed Hunter with a different name. I was told absolutely not, DP 85 and Hunter are not the same powder, but you can use Hunter data for loading with DP85. So far I have not found a home for my DP 85, but Hunter will always have a place on my bench.
