I was taught to reload by an old roomate of mine in college about 9 years ago. I guess he taught me the basic fundamentals, but I am also finding out that he taught me a lot of bad habits. I've never been able to get extremely tight groups out of anything I've loaded for. I've got around 1" groups at 100 yards out of most of my stuff but have never been able to get the clover leaf type stuff. I've never had an issue being able to drop game with what I've loaded....so far. It is most disappointing with my recent attempt to get a 300 Win to shoot. It's a Savage 110 with a 26" McGowan barrel, 1:10 twist that was accurized by a local smith. Below is what I have done with this gun listed chronologically. Hopefully someone can see something I am doing wrong or missing. The first 15 rounds were 200 gr Speer Spitzer soft points. Barrel break-in was Fire-clean for the first 10, then a 5 shot group. Brand new Winchester Brass run through an RCBS full length sizer Primed with CCI Large Rifle Magnum primers 66 GR IMR 4350 Bullet seated to 0.030" off the lands. The five shot group had three touching in one group then the other two touching about 1" away. I was able to Chrono these at 2820 to 2850 fps. A friend of mine gave me a five 210 gr Berger VLD's. I loaded these into the once fired brass that I only necksized and trimmed to 2.620" per the Nosler book. 70.0 gr H-1000 with the CCI's again and 0.015" off the lands. Terrible group. 1.75" or so. This was all done for break-in more than anything. Then working with Nosler Accubonds, 200 gr Winchester Large Rifle Magnum Primers in new brass, full length sized 5 rounds with 76.0 gr H-1000 and 5 with 77.5 gr H-1000 both 0.015" off the lands. The 76.0 gr load was crap, 2" or better then cleaned the barrel. The 77.5 gr load was decent. Under 1". Not quite a ragged hole but close but not as nice as the Speer group. All of the brass was Winchester brass and the necks were deburred prior to seating the bullets. I guess my question is, where do I go from here? Stick with the Accubonds? Try Bergers or SMK's? I am thinking that I should have stuck with a good quality bullet from the get-go rather than a hodge podge like I did. Sorry for the dumb questions and long post, but I not experienced in reloading for extreme accuracy. Thanks very much for any help.
