They have a good right up on this powder in the manual but do state.
"Don't experiment with any cartridge that we haven't tested extensively in our lab. Only certain components combination will yield the improved ballistics we're touting for this propellant."
I read that too after I bought it. I thought it was same powder in there 165 or 178gr superperformance loads, but its not. The superperformance powder in the other calibers is special blended for each caliber. Not the same as the powder being sold. A little misleading i think.

Re: hodgdon superperformance powder 300 win mag

Maybe someone with a factory loaded round will break it down and weight the charge in the Superperformance ammo using the 180 SST in the 300 Win Mag

Sorry, won't work. They blend the powder for the factory ammo differently. I'd use h1000, rl22, rl25 in a 300 win with a 180. Retumbo is a possibility but is compressed.
