Hodgdon doesn't "make" anything, they are an importer and distributor. They started in the 50's buying mil surplus powder by the truck load and repackaging it for reloaders. These days they import foriegn made powders that don't have a presence in the US.

My understanding is that in the case of W231, both Winchester and Hodgdon were importing it under different names. This overlap happened with several powders, which is probably why Winchester was keen to let Hodgdon handle all their powder distribution. In my area of the country, whatever the current price of HP-38, Win231 will always be $2/lb more.
