LSR ladder test

Man ! is it hot ! Went from 90 at 9:10 am to 98 by 11:00 am .
Anyway here is a ladder test that I think has some promising loads .>300 winmag. built by MR. Matthews [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] of Long Shot Rifle fame(justly deserved ) H1000 over 220 smks.Started @ 71.6 went to 75.8 in .3 gr increments.Velocities of 10,11,12 13 are 2785.2791,2809,2816.Remember there is a .3 gr diff between each of those rounds....Do you think it shows promise ?

    Chris can surely build an accurate good shooting rifle.
    Definitely looks promising.
    Keep us posted how it does.

    Ric ,
    11 was 74.6 and 12 74.9 .I also forgot to point out that shot one is isolated to the right because I dialed in a few clicks left because I was afraid the group was going to be off the target to the right. Also started this ladder with a clean bbl. with out any fouling shots , must remember to change that if I want to see potential of the lower velocity shots. BTW , great story, thanks for sharing.

    JB great minds think a like or at least evaluate data the same way....

    Thanks jim.. by the looks of things I am gonna say #12...

    do you have the 10 twist Rock barrel or the 10 twist Broughton?

    in either case... you gotta shooter fur sure...

    glad you liked the story... sometimes it is good to re-live other times I just wonder, what if?

    Re: LSR ladder test

    Dumb questions about the ladder test but until I joined this forum I had never heard of them:

    1. Accurately spotting which round went where is critical to the success of the test therefore do you spot with a scope at 300 or do you walk and look allowing the barrel to cool?

    2. Assuming you use a spot to identify round strike do you allow barrel to cool between shots?

    Thanks
