I am wanting to try some of the new Hornady Super Performance powder with some 95 gr. SST's in my .243. Not having much luck finding anything. Does anybody have any info on it?

midwayusa.com has it for $22.99 in the 1# size and also has 8# containers. Hogdon is doing it under the dual name of Hogdon Hornady according to the package labe and ad.

Sorry, I wan't very clear in my post. I already have the powder, I am looking for load data. I bought the powder before doing any searching for load info. I use the .243 for deer and am loading 95 gr. sst's.

Re: Hornady Super Performance Powder

I bought a box of the manufactured rounds which my 243 hates. I pulled the bullets and measures the powder on 10 rds and the average is 48.4 grs. I've been told that the Superpormance powder on the shelf that we buy is not the same powder that Hornady loads for the 95gr SST. I'm going to start around 46grs and work my way up. Good luck!

I shot 9 rounds yesterday. 41,41.5 and 42 gr.95 SST. Groups were not so good. 3-4 inches. Maybe I can go more. Can't find any load data.

Re: Hornady Super Performance Powder

I can't help you on load data, though I seem to recall that Hodgdon may have a pdf file on their website that 'might' contain data for the 243...

In a phone call with a Hodgdon tech., they told me that Hornady has 40 different "blends" of this Superformance powder. All for different rounds.

Hodgdon just "picked one" and brought it to market. Per our phone conversation, it has a very narrow window where it surpasses existing powders for velocity.

Also, per my phone conversation, it is slightly slower in relative burn speed than H4831 (and is listed accordingly in Hodgdon's lates burn rate chart).


I plan to try some Superformance in my 30-280 Ackley Improved, as Hodgdon's technician thought it "just might work" in that round.

Regards,

Rog
