List of powders by type ???

Does a comprehensive list of powders by type exist? Anywhere?

i.e. Clays = flake
Varget = Stick (short cut)

I am trying different types of powder because of the current shortage and I avoid certian powder types because of inconsistencies in metering through my powder measurer.

Thanks

Usually the maufacturer's description on the web will include a general note as to the powder's shape/type.

My reloading manuals have descriptions of all the currently produced powders (type and normal uses).
