Load Development - Steps To Take

What steps do you take when developing a new load. I guess first off you already know what bullet/powder combo you want to use.

Next I guess there's two factors that can vary: 1) grains of powder, 2) distance from the lands.

How do you experiment with these two factors to find the best combination for the load?

tks

Re: Load Development - Steps To Take

Ditto what Don said. Read closely the part about distance to do it. The farther the better.
