Re: Help and advice for Newbie !!!
You can try that, but you may want to play around with the load. .5" at 100 means nothing if you 200yrd is all over the place. I would keep the load and play with length. This might tighten up your ES and check your loads at 200 verses 100. Farther is better if you are comfortable. My cousin and I are starting load testing at 600 now. Gives much better info on load development. 200 should be the standard in my opinion. You may want to try a different primer too. This can help with bring your ES tighter.
