HDR is about contrast. Deeper blacks and brighter whites. Everyday you see things much brighter than what your TV is capable of, and your eyes handle it just fine.
Our eyes are most sensitive to contrast changes. HDR done properly can give you a whole new sense of depth in an image. Projectors don't have near the light output to do HDR properly, and neither do current LED panels, however they get much closer than projectors.
That being said you can still get a very good image with HDR on this projector if it is properly done.
The calibrated picture I have has very deep blacks and really good contrast. Digital Cinema just does not have enough light output to properly do HDR the contrast is too narrow, and whites get clipped. The only way to prevent this is to lower contrast or turn super white on. Problem with that is you lose brightness, and the picture looks too dark.
Bright Cinema has double the light output, and can provide a much better HDR image, and contrast. In this mode you can have a wider HDR like contrast, AND retain the overall brightness of the image. You can guess your settings I did that for awhile too. Or you can either pay a calibrator or invest in some instruments yourself, and test your projector.
You need a custom gamma curve to make it right, and the only way you can do that is through taking readings. If you don't than you are just guessing.
Even if I posted all my settings from the calibration they would not work for you. My room, and conditions are different than yours.

That's reassuring then that it does actually cover WCG.
I agree our eyes do see bright images every day but sat in a completely darkened room with various scene changes if whites a bright enough to make me squint that's to bright for me, it's just a personal thing I guess.
I'm intrigued how you have very deep blacks though unless your using the auto Iris ?, you can't make blacks deeper by calibration only if they were raised to begin with using to high a brightness or the wrong video level, unfortunately I can't use the auto Iris because it's noisy and distracting during quiet scenes.
I'm not a fan of superwhite on for HDR although it's a must for the natural SDR calibration I have done, once I get V3 of ChromaPure I will have a stab at HDR calibration and setup digital and bright cinema on memories to compare, it sounds like you have a very nice calibration and your happy which is the main thing !.
I certainly wouldn't want to copy all your settings, especially greyscale and colour gamut, that would be a wrong thing to do as like you say all displays will be slightly different , I would be interested to see a screenshot of your HDR gamma curve if your calibrator left you any charts ?, that would be interesting.
