Hows it going guys!!
So this is my first post in the reloading section.... So eat me up!!! lol
I have been reloading for about ten years now and have never reloaded for "accuracy".
In the past i have loaded for several different rifles in the same caliber. I have always had to reload for friends and family and had to find loads that would work "good" over a broad spectrum of rifles.
I have never had a problem achieving 1 moa accuracy over all out of all the rifles. But i have never had the chance to reload for one rifle and fine tune it.
My question is where do you start to fine tune loads with a rifle.
The rifle in question is a custom made 7mm WSM
. Im shooting the 160 accubond right now but have some bergers in route as i speak(180's and 168's)
I would like to make the accubonds work but am not settled on it.
I guess my post boils down to asking what first.
Do i mess with the OAL and find a seating depth that will work better with the rifle? Or do i load a bunch of different powders to see if it prefers one over the other.
I was thinking of loading 5 groups of 7 rounds each, and each group with a different OAL by .025. Same powder and charge. Shooting two groups of 3 with each one and seeing if there was a "sweet spot".
Would that be a bad first move?
