    My 30-06 is loaded with 165 gr Nosler ballistic tips,IMR 4350, and a CCI Mag primer. I have no complaints about this load. [accurate and deadly] I chrono this long time ago at 2750 fps. Now we have some [advertised as improved powders] My question is ,,,,,,,has anyone used anything like Superformance or Hybrid 100 to improve on velocities and still get the same accuracy expected from their rifle? I see 2900 fps achieved in the new reloading data, is this a realistic velocity? Also, has anyone experimented with the Barnes 130 gr TTSX with good results?

    According to Hodgdon your IMR 4350 outperforms the HB 100V by 130fps, no advantage there. Superformance only nets a gain of about 40fps.

    2750fps seems slow, Hodgdon list that for a Minimum charge, what is your load and barrel length?

    The new powders do bear alot of performance merit over older powders. I worked with 2000MR in the .308 when it first came out. I was pushing a 175 gr sierra matchking at 2985 fps before I started getting pressure signs. And the pressure signs was only loosened primer pockets after 2-3 reloads. I could have easily gone higher and pushed the cases to extractor marks and probably got another 100-150 more fps.

    I am using 57gr of IMR 4350 and a CCI mag primer. Actually my barrel measures 21 1/2". It is an old Win 670.

    I've used the 130 TTSX in the .300 win mag with velocities in the 3,600 fps range. IMR4350 is a popular powder in the -06 but I've had better results with H4831. Your shorter barrel might put you into a slightly faster powder like 4350 and some of the newer powders may give you some gain in the shorter tube. IMO I would never trade velocity for accuracy. You also might try the Federal 215M primer.
