Seriously though, that is what you mean, mixing one or more powder together?
That's exactly what I meant.
They are blending bulk powders, to achieve the burn rate necessary for the performance they are seeking. There have been several articles on the Superformance ammunition, that mention powder blendeding. I think the Superformance article in the 2011 Hodgdon manual discusses it a bit, as well.

The canister powder is, of course, not blended.
