    What Powders are being used in Superformance Ammo

    Having a read of the Hornady website re their super performance ammo. They are getting c200 fps second over the standard through using much better powder. I just wonder what powder they are using.

    Interesting article as well - particularly comments on recoil being more from jet / rocket effect of the powder than the equal and opposite to momentum effect - http://www.hornady.com/assets/files/...technology.pdf

    I have used this powder in my .243 but it's to much pressure and could not get a good group out of it. So back to Varget for me.

    They only chrono at 2900 fps in my 25:06 in 117 grain. Not slow but certainly no where near top speed where 3200 fps is easily achievable with RL22. Basically, don't believe all the hype.

    I've only just started using Varget in .243 so what would you recommend behind a 70grain BT or 100grain soft point boat tail?
