So basically I load up rounds until I get sticky bolt lift, then subtract 2 grains? Is that all? Thanks

Re: Wheres the reloading article?

or subtract 2%, Kirby's rifles are in the neighborhood of 100gr of powder. I tried it with my 270 and 243 subtracting 2% and the loads ended up pretty close to listed book max, interestingly though is that the shot pretty well. 1/2" right away for the 243 and 3/4" for the 270, this was at 100yrds though. I never put either on paper past that, just went strait to shooting gongs but they both rang em out to 400 so I figured that answered my question about it.

Depends on what caliber/powder you are using. Lots of difference adding .5 grains to a 220 swift versus a 338 edge.

with the 270 and 243 I went up in .5gr increments but that's a pretty standard increase rate for me to follow.
