    Hi guys,

    Looking for some advice on developing a load.
    OK I have found a good load 43.5gr of Varget this brings me on the board 3 shots at 12.7mm @ 100yds.
    This load was devised at 0.5gr increments.

    My question is should I then be moving at lower increments to find a sweeter spot ?
    Or should I be concentrating on the lands ?

    Any info. would be very much appreciated.

    SWALI.

    I would check the load at .3 plus and minus. Just to make sure you are in the center of the node. Then I would fudge the seating depth plus and minus to see if you are at the best spot. You may very well have the best load now, but unless you adjust a small amount, you will never know for sure.

    I haven't been to Glasgow in a while, I was in East Kilbride several years ago, it's the only place in the world that I've ever been drunk enough to sing karaoke :D, my debut and swan song was at a little bar that was previously a railroad station, you might know it.

    Good Luck,
    AJ
