Strange day on the ladder test

Well today I was finally able to complete both my ladder tests for my APS 25-284. I am new at this so I am not quite sure how to read the data. Both tests are way different. So here is my first test: 75 gr V-max, APS 25-284, RL-19, CCI 200.

Re: Strange day on the ladder test

aa

Use the URL first then click on continue to review your post.

The URL will be red or some color. In the continue screen, where you can review your post, click on the link.

Now, you will see your image and its own url ending in .jpg.

Highlite all of it and copy (control V).

Go back down to the window where you are writing your post and delete all of the url stuff.

Then click on IMAGE in the RBB Code and copy (control c) into the little window that opents.

Then click continue and you image should open in your review window. If it does click SUBMIT.

Its a bit of a pain but its the only way I can get it to work.

BTW, I'm typing this w/o my glasses, I haven't seen a word that I said......

Re: Strange day on the ladder test

Sean:

In your post above you had the same picture for both tests. Below is the picture until you can get it working on your end and get both to show up. As you can see, this one appears to be the one for the 125 gr. ULD RBBT



I think this might be the one for the 75 grain load.

Re: Strange day on the ladder test

RE:75 gr bullet and RL-19

It looks like Shots 15 & 16 define a "spot"
Also 19 & 20

These two sets of loads had the least velocity difference.

For this cartridge I'd recommend powder changes at 0.1 grains. You may well be skipping over a node. My personal observation is that the amount of powder has more to do with nodes etc, than velocities. Just my own tho't here....

If you want to do it again, use a max of 60grains and go down in 0.1 increments. That will cover both of the above mentioned "spots".

RE: the 125 gr and RL-22:

I'd suggest using a black sharpie to label the shots. I can't read most of the labels.

Again I'd suggest 0.1 grain increments using the same max load.

There are 3 shots pretty much together at the upper right hand corner of the larger red square. Can't see the labels thus don't know if they mean anything.

Thanks for posting the data, also ss7mm. Its good experience to see the different ways things turn out.
