With that load I'll do a seating depth test until I get a one hole group at 100 yds.
Then I'll test at 565 and 1000yds.
Pretty much the same for me. Putting every round over a chrono makes finding sweet spots much quicker.

Like rick stated,
I stay away from the lead sled. I test and tune my rifle the same way i intend to shoot it. Shoulder and bipod.
