Re: Ladder test w/ new brass -waste of time?
As was mentioned in an earlier reply, to really see the results of ladder tests it is best to shoot at least 300 yds. What you need to look for in a ladder test is vertical grouping. Pay no attention to how far they are apart horizontally because it doesn't matter. When and if you start to see two or three rounds that are very close together vertically you are possibly near the sweet spot. You then need to load three or four at each of these exact charges and then shoot them as seperate groups to see which if any give the group you are looking for. Good luck, and hope your rifle responds to all the load work you are doing.
