1.) 24.5 3142
2.) 24.7 3196
3.) 24.9 3176

7.) 25.7 3311
8.) 25.9 3225
9.) 26.1 3396
10.)26.3 3407

Shot at 200 yds., powder=benchmark 24.5-26.5 grains, .2 gr increments (nosler manual) bullet=50gr. nosler bal. tip.

Ok I think this is pretty much a no-brainer, gotta be the #5 load, right?

Re: Ladder Test

Here you go.



When you can see the picture, whereever it is on the net. Right click on it, click properties, highlight the http:whatever making sure it says .jpg at the end. Hit image as you did under the Instant UBB code, hit paste, and there you have it.

Re: Ladder Test

by the way, #1 was my sighter and it was about 8" directly above #10, so I adjusted 4 MOA down. Which Puts it about a half inch below #10 as I see it. Also, I'm pretty sure I pulled #8 a little right. I was using a Pact model 1, chrono and a CZ 527 american .223 rem.

Maybe not. Those three shots are grouped nicely but the velocities are all over the place. It may well be that those three powder weights shoot well together at 200 yds but as distance increased out towards maximum for the 223 the velocity variation will string them vertically.

Also 3284 isn't much velocity w/the 50gr in a 223. Why not run the ladder test up scale just a little more.

If your satisfied with the 3284 velocity you may wish to consider loading 3 @ 25.2, 3 @ 25.3 and 3 @ 25.4 and shoot three groups of three then overlay the targets and see how it looks. That may well show you some additional things.

Just tho't I'd add my 0.02$

Looks like you have a shooter there.

Good luck and good shootin'
