Just order a bunch of there older heavy mag stuff before i heard about the new superformance. I would have for sure and may just to try. Always been pleased with there products, seems like good stuff good across the line. Unlike many others.

I use their 40 s&w LE tap and have nothing but good to say. I've never heard anyone say anything bad about them so I'd say go for it

Yep....what do you want to know about the Superformance ammo?

I used a lot of Hornady Heavy Mags. In my .300 Win Mag, the 180gr Heavy Mag clocked an average of 3110 out of my 24" barreled Ruger. The the 225gr Heavy Mag in my .338 Win Mag went a tad over 2900 from my 24" barreled Ruger. The .300 shot 0.6" groups, and the .338 shot 0.7's @ 100 yards. So needless to say, they performed great, and I would expect no less from their new stuff.

IMHO, Hornady is the cutting edge of ammo technology,i use .223 vmax ,.308 sst,and lever evo .44 mag .All of them i think are unsurpassed in there specific roles ,havnt used the superformance yet but i would think it will be outstanding and will certainly be trying it asap,cheers.

I understand [from Jan. Rifleman mag] Hornady will be dropping their heavy mag and one other line in favor of superformance. I am interested in accuracy reports. From return posts all positive.
Getting tired of reloading .45 years ago one did not have the loaded cartridges that are available today. I still shoot too much old crap that I must reload.
Thank you for the input,,, it is appreciated.

The Hornady Light and Heavy magnum ammo is out a' here!

The new 'Superformance' ammo will be taking its place...nearly the same as the light and heavy mag ammo in performance but better in the ballistic department, both internal and external, so Hornady will tell you!

While the velocities may be a tad less then the older ammo, the pressure curves are said to be much improved, resulting in better performance and less recoil and a smoother more linear recoil impulse.

For off the shelf,Hornady is hard to beat,the only other for me is Weatherby(Norma) ammo.

I've shot the .243 80gr load. It did well. Velocities were as advertised. Good accuracy for factory stuff.

I bought 5 box's of 7mm rem HM in 139gr sst and it turns out hornady say's that the 7mag was one of the harder to make work well , I can't wait till i need more ammo for it. This stuff will shoot 2" groups at 400 yards.
