I tried several different powder's and seating depth's with 2 different bullets The 160gr Accubond and the 154gr Interbond.
After the first test I had to get a bigger 100yard target to accurately measure the groups. The 160gr Accubonds were not stellar shooting around an inch to inch and a quarter but the Hornady 154gr Interbond shot around a foot to a foot and a quarter. I tried 3 different powders and 3 different seating depths and never shot 1 group under 12" (yes that is a foot) worst bullet EVER. I was unlucky enough to buy 200 of the same lot and still have 75 left if someone else needs a laugh LOT# 04-022
I'd tape those bullets to a paper target and use them as your bullseye while shooting some Nosler or Berger bullets at them. GG could probably shoot the plastic tips off of them with his new Krieger barrel.
Good grief - 12" groups! Couldn't do any worse if those were loaded butt-ends forward. I had some .338 225 grain Hornady Spire Points that shot about 6-8" groups out of my 338 Win Mag 12 or more years ago. They patterned like 00 buckshot. But your 12" + groups has gotta set some kind of record! Take that box of bullets and fire them out of a home-made cannon. Get rid of'em all at once.
