Re: How do you test your loads?
After ladder testing at 300, I move to 200 for 5 shot grouping with atleast 30-45sec between shots.
Then I go to cold bore testing/adjustment, again at 200, beginning 3-4hrs between shots, then days between shots(barrel cleaned/dry prefouled), then I go right to 10min between shots.
200yds and 10min shot rate produces the very worst in performance from my guns, and this is what I want to see. 200 is my nemesis, I shoot better further out.
When I can pull a clean gun and put a single shot into a 1" bull at 200, off a Harris bipod, the gun is ready for LRH.
None of this can be assumed.
