Re: Strange day on the ladder test

Sean,

I reckon I'm missing something here buuuut, the charge weights you have listed are in .3 gr. increments and the targets are in .1 gr. increments [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

It may be easier to mark shots in the order they fired ( 1, 2, 3, etc. ) and refer to your charge weight progression sheet that you loaded by . It is a lot easier to look for say .....1 through 25 with no decimals involved then on your test record bracket shots as they group on you target .

The shots are marked in order. S1 thru S20. Sorry for the confusion.

Yeah, the "S" looks a bit like a "5", but I do understand what you've got there.

Okay guys, what's the verdict? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: Strange day on the ladder test

I to would like to know what shots and why? The ladder test seems to be very effective. I have no idea on how to begin with what shots to test.

Re: Strange day on the ladder test

A little chrono data would be priceless here!! I'm still a novice on this ladder testing but I firmly believe that by watching the velocities on a chrono, one can arrive @ a very good combo for a rifle. This makes it very easy to spot the nodes, even if the groups on paper are not doing what you think they should.

Re: Strange day on the ladder test

Sean. Good thing you did the test yesterday. I went to the desert today ant the wind was hitting 20-25 mph. I didn't fire a shot. Gnoehuntingagain did shoot though and was whackin' the 408 yard gong with .308s and .223s with great regularity.

Try graphing the relative vertical position of your shots so you can see a trend or a pattern. Also graph your velocity. If I didn't do that with the ladder I shot a couple weeks ago I never would have made it to the next step. Once the shots were put in a neat order and I got some coaching the pattern I was looking for jumped out at me. I have yet to confirm this but the rounds are loaded and ready to try.

(I would do it for you but I'm exhausted and will be spending the remainder ofthe evening watching closing olympic ceremonies and sleeping.)

BTW we will have to get together and go to the desert an whack gongs this spring before it gets too hot and the snakes come out.
