Re: Load development from ladder test, uhhhhhhh help!!!!

Good post Forester.

Folks do seem to have higher hopes for the ladder test as an absolute than any develpment method can provide. I use it to ELIMINATE those charge ranges that obviously won't shoot well and then work on the range(s) that suggest a good load.

NO system of load development is worth any more than the shooter can repeat. Few of us can actually hold a group as tight as we seem to think.

An occasional 'screamer" group is so rare that many of us cut it out and save it in our wallets! Good for braggin' rights, nice to look at but not at all representative of what we or the rifle or load can be depended on to do, that's why we save them!
