    Hornady sells 308 superformance ammo but I have found no load data for the powder in 308. I am almost ready to buy a box of ammo and weigh the load to give me a guide of where to start. Anyone use this powder in 308 and have data to share and results??? give me a call 253 854 1678 Thanks Tod

    I heard that The superformance powder is tailored to specific loads/calibers. Other loads such as my 7MM REM MAG are a "mixture" of powders... I to would appreciate any input from anyone with more information on this.

    Superperformance powder, based on my observation of the calibers and bullets shown in their reloading data, is for fast loads in the "short magnum" cartridges. Most in the 155 gr and less category.

    Hornady does show that their factory loaded "Superperformance" match ammo in .308 is capable of 2800 fps + with a 168 gr A-Max but I find that in my 24" bbl .308 a speed of 2675 fps is far more accurate.

    One could work up load data of their own using a chronograph. Start with a load that fills the case around 80% and work up until you get the speed you want with no pressure signs. That's all the fun of reloading when you think of it.

    Looking for load data for this new powder. Can't find it on their website as is stated on their container. Anyone have a weblink with data?
