i have shot some of the Hornady Superperformance ammo out of mine, and let me tell you, it's like the Hammer of Thor hitting you in the shoulder! ouch!
that's why i like the slower powders for it. i get a much more gentle felt recoil and very good accuracy with it. using either the IMR 4895 or the IMR 4831, i can still get over 2700 fps in muzzle velocity with a 165 gr. bullet. works great on paper targets and would still bust a deer if i wanted it to.
