***ladder test done now what***

HERE IS THE LADDER TEST I DID TODAY @ 100 YARDS(ALL I COULD SHOOT SINCE 200 WAS DOWN). COULD USE A LITTLE HELP TRANSLATING IT. I REALLY DONT UNDERSTAND THE ALL OF THE 49 GRAINS JUST ODD. I HAD GOOD REST IN THE LEAD SLED AND TOOK MY TIME. I WOULD LIKE TO THINK THAT MY SHOOTING WAS GOOD NEVER HAD A SHOT THAT FELT BAD. THE WIND WAS GUSTING THE WEATHER SAID 10 BUT FELT HARDER.

Why is marked COAL 3.191-3.198?
What are the numbers beside each listed charge(ex: 51.0-.197)?
What was the shot rate?

Why are you varying 2 things at once?

Is this measure taken from loaded bullet tip to casehead?
Do you know if your actual bullet seating depth is the same for every shell?

I ask because it's very difficult for anyone to interpret 2 variables at the same

Based on what I see on the target I would work up loads between 50.7 and 51.0 grains and between 48.2 and 48.7, those are the weights that showed a cluster of some sort. As for the 49 grain loads , I would say your gun does not like them..
