Ok all here goes. Im trying to get the most out of my 338 edge. Ive always just loaded 92 grains h1000 and shot it.. Iam getting more serious than that now. I bought some new brass expanded and skim neck turned them. Uniformed primer pockets, debured flash hole weight sorted and used the ones that were all within a grain of each other.. I then bought a gem pro scale and used it to check the accuracy of my hornady electric power dropscale. Hornady lock load d dispencer thing?... got redding bushing dies. 364 bushing 363 bushing . Bought sinclair chamber depth guage. Ok heres where i am now. This is the part iam thinking about now. Oh i guess i better buy a ced m2
. I own a pro chrono thats always gave me readings. A pact that has never worked. Guess ill get a ced m2 .. ok back to where i was getting. Now should i lo ad up say 2 rounds at 89 grains two at 89.5 two at 90 and so on till i get to say 93. And shoot them at 500 yards and go down a look for accuracy nodes. Or should i load up the same and shoot them through a chrono and see witch one has the lowest es. Or should i load up 5 at 92grains touching lands 5 at 92grains 5 thousand off the lands 5 ten thousands. 5 20 thousand 5 30 thousand off 5the 40 thousand and 5 50 thousand. Shoot them at 300 yards through chrono and look at group ,and mv for lowest es. The bullet is a berger 300otm hybrid. I stoped chewing a year a ago. But man this is driving me crazy thinking i might start that bad habbit again. My wife and daughters are gona be upset with me. I had a guy build this gun for me and my wife never batted an eye because she said she was so proud of me and i deserved. It .. help please!!!!
