Hodgdon Superformance Smokeless Powder 8 Lbs
by HODGDON , IMR & WINCHESTER
This is another of the spherical powders Hodgdon® Powder Company and Hornady® Manufacturing introduced to answer the frequently asked reloading question: “Can I buy the powder used in the Hornady Superformance factory ammunition?” Superformance delivers striking velocities in cartridges like the 22-250 Remington, 243 Winchester and 300 Winchester Short Magnum. Velocities well in excess of 100 fps over the best published handloads and even larger gains over factory ammunition! Because this propellant is tailored for specific applications, the number of cartridges and bullets is limited, but where it works, it really works! Grain shape is flat ball.
This powder is great! Shoot 1/4 MOA if I do my part out of a factory savage 10 BA stealth. Loaded with 44.5 grains with Barnes match burner 140 grain and .018″ off the lands. I will continue to buy this powder for this load.
I used this for a factory 300wsm that was very finicky. It liked a stiff load behind a 165gr Accubond at 3,115fps. I achieved 3/4 MOA and using a Leopold CDS it stayed consistent from 70 degrees to -14 when I took an elk in Colorado. Very temperature in-sensitive. Not an all around powder but great for it’s intended loadings.
