Re: New at Long Range

I accomplished what I wanted to today, I narrowed down a node in my barrel that maybe I can tune to. Thanks for the advice Trebark, I will follow your suggestion and try .2 gr. increments around the two charges that got the best groups. If I don't do better than an inch, then I will try the more drastic approach. I have nothing to lose other than a little time now.

The bergers are very sensitive to seating depth. After finding the powder load that shoots the best, play with the length. Seating some slightly longer and some slightly shorter than your current length. I'm sure one direction will tighten them up more.
