    R 417 c - Hot Shot 2, even comes in an off white cylinder : ) .... no problems using Hot Shot or Hot Shot 2 for medium temperature ..... as with any blend you may want to look into any oil return concerns ...

    Pretty sure 414b isn’t made anymore due to the R22 in it.

    Hot Shot 2 (417C)
    If you have 414 lying around it works fine for a 12 replacement. I never had issues with it except with AXV's
