This is getting a little confusing. Maybe reviewing the past will tell us if we are talking about one formula change or two.

1) The formula change from lots of moly to zero moly was first discovered in Oct. 2008. Both VOAs done in Oct. 2008 showed 1-3 ppm Moly.

2) Then we saw the UOA in this thread that had moly in the 20s

3) Then you checked with Dave and he said it has 100ppm. Since the previous VOAs had zero, I assume the change from zero to 100ppm was a new formula change. Are you saying that the formula change first discovered in Oct. 2008 was supposed to be 100ppm?

Just trying to figure out if this is a new formula change (sometime since Oct. 2008) or if this is the same formula as the Oct. 2008 one. I guess it could also just be variability with batches or could be lab variability.

Saaber1,

I think there were TWO formulation changes in the past.

High moly -> No moly
No moly -> Low moly


My guess:

High Moly = non-CJ-4
No and Low Moly = CJ-4
