WW 231 IS a ball powder.

Ball powder describes the manufacturing process, not the powder itself.

During manufacturing, ball powders are often shape altered to varying degrees to control the burning characteristics.

In the case of 231, the shape altering produces what appear to be flakes, but which are simply flattened balls.
