It's probably not a cannister powder.
Ammo companies load with powders that are enough different from lot-to-lot that they simply develop the load for THAT lot of powder.
These powders are known as non-cannister powders.
Cannister powders are what's sold to reloaders.
Cannister powders are kept more consistent from lot-to-lot so that the same loads can be used with different lots.
I would probably try 4064 with the 175's.
