Re: shot stringing

Let's assume that load, shooter and bench/rests are ok. if not sure, check here first.

Stringing at short range is due to a large part to poor bedding and conditions.

Stringing at long range is compounded by poor powder burn ie velocity variations.

Re: shot stringing

I don't have a chrono but have access to one and will try to use it next trip to the range. I am using 37 gr varget pushing 50 gr v max 22-250. I was using h380 before and don't know if I had this problem because I was using it to break in the barrel. I don't think its a bedding problem but I guess I should not rule it out. I was thinking velocity variations could cause it to go vertical but it is also going horizontal. Maybe I'm doing something wrong as well. I will play some more and see what gives. Thanks for the input guys.
If you're gonna be dumb you better be tough.
