What is a \"Ladder Test\"?

I've read a couple of references regarding Ladder Tests on this board. Could someone explain this?

    elkfirst,
    Basically, the short description of a ladder test would be shooting a series of rounds, each with different powder charges loaded in increasing incriments of charge wt in an attempt to find vibration nodes that minimize the dispersion caused by varying charge weights, while allowing an accurate, repeatable load to be found for a rifle, with a minimum round count being fired. Ive got a document that does a passable job of explaining the ladder test. If you would like a copy, id be happy to email it to you.
