Re: Load Development During Barrel Break in

I develop the same as Broz only add six rounds at the end of the three to five shot development strings with what I would estimate as a "safe" load for scope tracking. After the last 3 to 5 shot load development string, clean and cool, then start with the first 3 of 6 round shots for group, cool, three more with 30-40 MOA elevation adjustment on a tall target and plum for cant if results are acceptable, then clean again. This uses 6 more rounds fire formed out of the lot of 50 new brass I usually start with.
Shoot CONFIDENT, Shoot SMART, Shoot STRAIGHT
