how to make a accuracy load for your gun.
i shot a “ladder” yesterday. a ladder is where you make 5 rounds of one powder weight and compare it to the next load. i made 5 ea from 72gr to 81gr so 50 rounds,10 different loads, 5 of each load.
i learned several things from this. first i tend to go into getrdone mode and was rushing my 4th group each time. next instead of putting up 4 targets at a time and shooting 4 groups i should do one group at a time and change targets each time instead of gitrdone. the next thing i am going to do is make 6 rounds of ea and have a friend, mr black shoot 3 at one target, then me shoot 3 at another so we both shoot the same load as a double blind. i hope this will do several things, mostly help the spastic retard on the trigger get good data. so at this point i am going to make another 60 round ladder and have mr black help me shoot it. i also start with a test group of three rounds of factory ammo to warm up. the new xbolt with the can on is amazing. how many times have you shot 50 rounds of 300 win mag and still wanted to shoot more? the recoil reduction of the can is amazing. when i did this for the a-bolt i hit a sweet spot around 78gr. not much usable data on this ladder other then i need to so it differently. i also got better groups from the sand bag then the magpul bipod. after i get the next ladder done i will do it again and fine tune it. this ladder is full one grain jumps, so 72,73,74 ect. after i see which groups best ill do it again with .2 gr jumps. so if 78gr is best group ill do 77.2 , 77.4, up to 79gr. make sense? of course not if you are reading how a spastic retard makes accuracy loads then dont expect it to make sense.
