When doing a Ladder test or any other form of load development you can use the 1% rule.In a case such as the 6BR which fires approximately 30 grains of powder you would work with 0.3 grain increments.On a case such as a 300 Ackley which runs 80 grains of powder you would use 0.8 gr increments.
Once your load window is found you can lower the increments to 0.1 grain to find best accuracy.
The load window on a 6BR case typical for 600-1000 yard competition is 0.7 grains wide.The load window on a typical 300 Ackley used for 600-1000 yard shooting is 2.5 grains wide.
Your best accuracy will usually be found above the halfway point in your load window and this will also produce the lowest extreme spreads.
