There's quite limited data out there for this powder. Hornady's manual shows data for 6.5 Creedmoor, which is what I'm looking for. However, with limited availability of bullets, I am wanting to use some 130 gr Berger VLD hunting bullets that I found, and anything else I might be able to find. I'd love to find some 130 or 140 accubonds and use Superformance behind them. Any experience using Superformance when specific load data isn't published for a specific bullet? Hodgedon has a bit of info as well, but not much

I just picked up a pound, too... just because it was there. The new Hodgdon magazine has some loads for 6.5, I'll snap a pic and send it your way. Mostly in the 140+ gr bullets and 45 grain territory for max loads. Looks like it's a little faster than the old standby, H4350.

I tried this powder with 130 accubonds. I wanted to push it for the speed, I found zero acceptable accuracy from 1.5grains below max to max. The less the charge the better the accuracy. I was not willing a to accept the lower speeds.
I however did find that superformance with 120tsx. Consistently shoots like group attached. BB5F26B8-F8DE-4CFA-B5AA-31AFF414948F.jpeg

I've had good results running SuperFormance in my Begara 6.5CM. I'm running 140gr Hornady BTHP, starline brass, 210M primers, and 44gr of powder.

Unfortunately, I don't yet have a chronograph, but my dope has me right around 2725fps with a 22" barrel.
