With so little published data out there for this powder and different from the powder found in its' factory loads, I wanted to put a shout out for any tested loads that folks were willing to share. cheers

Any particular caliber? I have some good loads worked up for 6.5 Creed and 30-06 I can share when I have a chance to reference my notes. I really like this powder other than it being a little messy with the Chargemaster Lite.

I have 257Rbts, 270Win, 270WSM, 325WSM, 338WM, .308 and 7mm-08 that I'd be interested in. They have a load for 300WSM already published.

I have used it in various 280 Remington rifle with lightweight bullets, mostly Barnes 120gr TTSX. Velocity was impressive. Makes for a great antelope combo.

However the number of suitable cartridges and bullet weights are pretty limited with this powder. Other than the 300WSM I don't think you'll find much or any data for the other cartridges you listed. Hodgdon's website is the only real source for data that I know of.

I consider Superformance a niche powder that works well in very limited applications. Sorry, wish I could be more helpful.

My Tikka T3 '06 likes (<MOA):
56.6gr of SF under 208 ELD-M with 3.365 COAL. ( ~ 2650fps, same as 52gr RE17 )
61.3gr of SF under 168 A-Max with 3.35 COAL. (runs significantly faster than book)

Just starting to work up SF loads on a Rem700 .270win and a Bergara '06

I have talked to Hornady about this powder and they "tweek" it for all their specific loads but the one that is available for reloading is I would say a generic and is not that good for many calibers.
Is is for one or two (dont remember which) I'm thinking 270 win.
Give them a call... they where very friendly and helpfull.

I'll definitely be interested in the 270 load you come up with.

I worked up a load for 260 Rem using published starting data for 6.5 CM. No pressure problems using 42gr under 120 Nosler. Good accuracy so far, but I haven't begun exploring seating depths.

I have only tried in a Tikka T3 Lite 6.5 Creed. I'd have to look at my notes but I do remember at max it was very accurate with 140 ELDX, VLD hunting and nosler accubond. Just as accurate as H4350 and about 100 fps faster. I haven't seen any loading data for 6.5 PRC With it but H1000 and Retumbo im sure are slower burning. Hybrid 100 X was also very accurate at max loads and was also 100 fps faster than 4350.

I did some load work ups with Superformance in the 338 Win. with 225 Sierra bullets.
starting at 71 gr. 2673
Max was 76 gr. at 2913 fps.
75 gr. was my most accurate at 2900 fps.

I am currently working with it in a 270 Win. with 130 gr. E-tips but no results to share.

Here is a three shot group at 300 yds using 44.7 grains with Hornady 140 ELDM in my 6.5 Creedmoor.
