Handloading for the TC encore
Anyone have any tips? I loaded for it my 25-06 for the 1st time last week. Everything shot horrible. I had been using a Winchester 120 Positive Expanding Point. They shot between 1/2 and 3/4 of an inch routinely. Until I tried these loads the gun had never shot a 3 shot 100 yards group over 1". The average group with the handloads was 2"! I have been reloading for while and there must be something I am over looking. I prepped the brass by sorting by weight +/- 0.1 gr. Bullets were sorted by weight +/- .05 gr. (used a jewers scale that can go up to 150 gr. Powder =/- .0 gr. I loaded 6 rounds of 6 different loads and sorted each by weight. Final loads were sorted in groups with +/- .2 gr.
Do you think that I just chose loads that the gun did not like, or is there something that I missed?
I just know enough about long range shooting to kno that I dont know sh*t about long range shooting!
