How to create a accurate load

Hello,
I have been playing with my .270 weatherby magnum and can't get 140 accubonds to shoot. Can someone tell me how to create a perfect load from start to fininsh.

1.New .270 weatherby brass
2. IMR 7828ssc starting load 67 grains per nosler book (I have many powders I just picked one)
3. Fed 215 primers
4. I do have a chrono

Can someone get me started in the right direction? I guess from case prep to the load itself to shooting and what to look for.

Sorry for the rookie questions but I reload for 8 guns and never had this much trouble.

Thanks Aaron

What twist rate is your barrel? how are you measuring seating depth? How are you setting your headspace with your dies? etc.

The barrel is 1 in 10 twist. My seating depth is how far I can seat them in the magazine. I don't know the correct way of doing this. Because of the freebore. I dies are set up per RCBS instructions.

hope this helps
Aaron

Does the rifle shoot any other bullet well. The rifle might just not like the accubonds.

I can shoot 130 grain accubonds at 100 inch and a half. I am having trouble shooting 150 grain bullets as well. I only have about 40 rounds down the pipe.

make sure your bore is clear from copper fouling, then start with the development of loads.

When I shot a mark V 257 weatherby it would group like that until it was loaded with a hot load then it started to tighten up. I would clean the heck out of the bore and start working up a load from low to high range of powder. If you have other powders ( I can not find my Nosler book at this moment) I would try to see if it liked any thing else with the same type of from low to high charges. oldfamily.
