Hod. Hornady Superperformance

Any one try this powder yet? Picked up a can last weekend and loaded up some for my 6 x 284. Going to try this weekend but figuring out starting loads was very trial and error. Its fine like a ball powder but appears to be slow burning looking at label. What i was going by is i loaded some 150 bt for my son in laws 300 wsm with 65 grains of I-4350 and label dats says 72 grains for 155 30 caliber hornady. Guess ill find out on my own.

Re: Hod. Hornady Superperformance

Okey, did some testing this evening with my 6mm x284. My normal load for it I-4350 53 grains sending a 85 sierra bthp at 3450. Thinking it was a slower burning powder i was right. I had some of my regular loads loaded up and decided to pull some bullets and start dumping out the 4350. I played it safe and started out at 50 grains and went 1 grain incriments only loading 2 rounds per charge. The reason why only 2 i was only looking for pressure and vel. along with re using bullets i pulled. I stopped at 55 grains with vel. at 3400 and no close sign of coming close to pressure. Even with a wind this evening it seemed like it wanted to group 3 charges giving me 2 touching with es from 12- 24 fps. I reloaded this evening starting at 56 grains with 3 rounds each going up to 60 grains. Hoping to get back out tommorow and deal some serious testing.

Re: Hod. Hornady Superperformance

was able to get 3620 1/2" group with 58 grains 4350 only would give me 3450. This powder is very impressing for this gun. Just remember it is slower burning than I-4350.
