Hornady Superformance and LEVERevolution Powders coming 2011

Starting January 2011 Hodgdon will be selling Hornady Superformance and LEVERevolution Powders. Downrange.TV reports

Hodgdon’s new Hornady Superformance and LEVERevolution reloading powders are the same propellants used in Hornady’s innovative and award winning high performance factory ammunition. Like its name, Hornady Superformance powder delivers striking velocities –nearly 190 feet per second faster than the nearest competitor in the 300 WSM! Other top cartridge loads are in the 22-250, 243 Winchester and the 300 Ruger Compact Magnum. Hornady LEVERevolution powder offers performance in the 30-30 Win. that has never been available previously with handloads. Velocity with a 150 grain bullet is an astounding 2,512 feet per second, that’s 122 fps faster than any 30-30 Win. published load. Both are especially smooth metering Spherical powders that flow easily through a measure.

I have recently spent quite a lot of money on Hornady Superformance ammunition and these powders may be push I need to start reloading!

    Sweet, I’ve chronographed the 150 SST loads out of my DPMS 308T @ 2,800fps and my 3 shot groups averaged .5” to .75”.
    I’ll have to buy a jug and see how it stacks up against TAC which I’ve been very pleased with.

    I’m looking for a powder to stoke up my .270 wsm winchester in 150 grn
    and my ruger m77 .308 150 -165 grn and if possible to develop a hotter and safely accurate load for my Rem woodmaster semi( in 30.06 15-165) how many niches would superformance fill? if not what powder would do better? I currently use Imr 4350 with good results I’m using speer ballistic tips mainly on Deer. I understand any info or use of is my responsibility
