Should I have done my ladder at 300yds? I've loaded up one other cart (diff Rifle) for longer distance and I'm thinking the success I had was just getting lucky the first go around.

If it is a winnie I'd suggest something more like 4895. But you can't argue with those velocities...
you are correct 270 win. These are 90 gr sierras. This post goes in conjunction with the twist rate post. It's 1:10 twist rate. The charge is just below sierras max in the book. I thought (and still may be the case) this load would hold together better for me at distance. I'm by no means am I Match shooter, but I have trouble beleiving the crappy grouping I get past 200yds is all me. I'm talking about 8" at 300 yards in light wind. I know
I'm capable of better than that. I'm trying to understand what could be the cause so I don't do whatever I'm doing here again.

I chose this bullet because I have small areas to hunt with about 400 yd max safe range and I wanted bullets that come apart on impact so theres nothing flying off weather it's a hit or miss(again safty).
