If you play with these measurements one at a time and note the differance you will work up the best load for your rifle. Having said that, If you are shooting at 200 yards and getting 1.375 inch groups you are already doing better than the .75 MOA that you wanted. .75 MOA at 200 yds. = 1.5 inches
hi, great advice above but i'd start with powder first and see how you go (did you develop a load for your rifle or just copy one? just tweaking (up or down .5 of grain to start off with , then .2 when you reach your best group) your powder can really tighten your groups), then case length etc..... after you have checked what you bullet seating depth is etc...Gary
