Superformance w/ A-Max?

So one day I was just thinking about life... And this idea spark struck me!

What if... I took a factory Hornady 162gr SST Superformance in 7RM. I used the same powder charge of Superformance but instead tipped the load with a 162gr A-Max.. Has this been done before? Or anything similiar?

Who has done development using Superformance before? Is it all as good as Hornady claims?

Re: Superformance w/ A-Max?

Are you talking about pulling the bullet and reseating a Amax? Or using superformance powder with the Amaxs? Because the superformance powder you can buy is not the same as what's factory loaded.

Re: Superformance w/ A-Max?

really? I thought it was the same.. Hornady was saying how the load data for their Superformance 6.5CM is printed on the box and you can make your own clones.. I'd think its the same.

A bud of mine makes his own .270 140gr SST Superformance; the same as factory too.. it shoots and flies the same.

And what I would do is just pull the bullet off a factory. Measure the charge weight. Then use that same weight in a load using the A-Max

A lot of there loads are a special blend of powders, that may differ from one cartrige to another.

Ohh OK, yea after I read what you said I did some research and found they use mixtures that arnt even available to the market? Hmm.. that sucks..

Have you ever used the marketed Superformance powder at all? Is it any good?

I haven't yet but would like too. I have too look up what caliber they have loads for. Was surprised they don't have a 223 load but might be a little slow burning for the popular 55 bullets?
