Every single saddle is different. Even ones of the same brand, make, year. There is padding to take into account, shape, balance, weight.. so that's why it's imperative to check saddle fit though sometimes current saddles just need to be modified via adding more padding or taking it away or some can be reshaped slightly.
I'm not an expert but I try to read up on these things. Though I'm comfortable with English saddles, I'm not read up on Western ones.
