    There's some basic tricks to using it.
    A. Try to build a load where Pmax and Z1 are on top of each other (in the graph), this gives the best groupings
    B. Try to build a load with a minimum exit pressure, this will have the least bullet upset.
    C. Keep the powder loaded in the brass just under or just over 100% (I use anywhere between 96%-105%), never right on 100%. If it's a 100%, some shells will be compressed and some not, they will have different burn characteristics.
    D. After you've modeled a load, shot it and worked with it to get your groups tight, adjust the case volume setting in Quickload to get a matching muzzle velocity.
    E. Once you've got a completed load, note the barrel time. This is your barrel harmonic time. Use this to create other loads for that barrel, match your barrel time and you should have a load that groups tightly.

    Remember this is a modelling tool, and you must use it in conjunction with results from actual shooting really make it sing.

    AlbertaBound,
    Is it really that simple in real life though. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
    Good tips, and stuff I think about too.

    jaeger,
    What program do you use for motor building? Dyno 2000 Engine Simulation? I have that one, and I like it a lot.

    Does anyone know any powder tweaks?
    I'd love to add calibrated-psuedo WC-8xx, or benchmark

    Brent,
    I don't have extensive time with it, but the boy's over in AccurateReloading use it extensively. It certainly worked when I was fighting with an Abolt II 300WinMag with BOSS to build a load. I had put over 300 rounds through this rifle trying the ladder method, a modified ladder method, etc. and couldn't get my preferred bullet to group any tighter than 1.5". So in desperation I bought it, learned how to use it, and modeled a single load, next thing I know it's shooting 0.5" groups.

    I also use it to do what-if's comparisons when I'm thinking of purchasing a different caliber.

    AB
