Superformance

I want to give the hodgdon superformance a try in my 26-06 rem but can't find data anywhere...not for any cartridges really. I looked up burnrates on their website and it's between 4831sc and rl22. So I made an "educated guess" where to start. If anyone has any info or recommendations I'm all ears!

You're right, it's not listed for .25-06. You're treading untrod ground. Be careful and go slowly. I only see data for nine cartridges, from 22-250 to 300 WSM. It looks like it works best in short, fat cases. The Hodgdon website says: "Because this propellant is tailored for specific applications, the number of cartridges and bullets is limited, but where it works, it really works!"

It looks like this powder works best in short, fat cases. Be careful.
