    Would you mind giving a bit more details ?

    What distance are you shooting ?

    What caliber ? powder ? bullet ?

    why are you jumping a half grain for each increment ?

    Hopefully others will respond here as you provide more data.

    OK 200 yards,Savage 10mlII smokeless powder muzzleloader,45 cal. 300gr hornady xtp bullets and H4198 powder. and the reason I went half a grain is because its a muzzleloader.

    OKIE DOKIE THEN,


    64,64.5 ,65,65.5 , and I'm not sure that half grain increments is necessary for bp or that it will show better whats going on .

    Otherwise , good shooting !

    never laddered a muzzle loader before... tough to tell from just the target, but if it were me, id load a few ( doh... you know... at the range [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]) at 65 and 65.5 and see how they grouped. Thinking of it as a sixty -70gr capacity rifle, I think the large steps in powder would hurt more than help. id still do it at .3gr were it I.
