    OK guys, here is 2 OCW's I did with the same gun. Can you tell me what the OCW would be? To me it looks like it would be around 63.1g.

    To me it looks as though 64.4 is very good too. Less vertical in the groups. Adjust your OAL to tighten the group.

    63.1 is good too. Same thing with OAL. This may be great target load or hotter weather load.

    Then stretch it out over a distance and see....but I'd find the best OAL for the 64.4 load. That's my 2c.

    You do have a node at 63.1 grains... and since nodes are usually about 3% apart, the next one would be at around 65 grains. Your 64.4 grain charge would be on the lower edge of the 65 grain node.

    Great shooting rifle! :)
