Re: Accuracy, the load or the shooter?

This is why I like to use the lead sled when developing new loads. I want to take myself out of the equation as much as possible, so that when a group opens up on me, it is most likely the load. But once I have the load I want, it's time to get off the sled and get into whatever position you will most likely use in the field....and then practice, practice, practice.

Re: Accuracy, the load or the shooter?

Has not been mentioned, but you can goober up your testing by changing your barrel cleaning process and Freq.
If you know what SHE likes stick with it, ie clean after how many rounds 5-20-35 or even 50!!! It can change everything.
Good luck.
