Here is my first ladder test I've ever done. I'm looking for input and if I'm on the right track. Here is the info. Phoenix Custom Rifles 300 RUM Blueprinted/Trued 700 PTG firing pin/spring H-S Precision Sendero takeoff stock Pillar bedded 28" Kreiger Barrel Badger Thruster Brake PTG .25 lug Timney 510 Triger @2lbs. Nightforce 40moa rail Vortex Razor HD 5-20x50 EBR-2B 25moa turret Vortex Rings I loaded the 300 Rum with brand new remington brass, fed 215m primers, 230 berger match hybrid target, brass oal @ 2.40, coal 3.918, and retumbo. Shot @ 300 yards prone with rest and rear bag. Zero wind, 50 degrees, 2100ft elevation. Dialed 2 moa up from my 200 yard zero with an estimated muzzle velo of 2900. Shot two sighter shots and then proceeded. 1.) 84.0 2.) 84.5 3.) 85.0-bad primer didn't ignite 4.) 85.5 5.) 86.0 6.) 86.5 7.) 87.0 8.) 87.5 9.) 88.0 MAX 10.) 88.5 MAX+ 11.) 89.0 MAX+ 12.) 89.5 MAX+ From looking at the pic I believe shots 7, 8, 9 are the node. They Measured .869 ctc at 300 yards. What do you guys see? I am I reading this correctly? I may go back and load shots 7,8,9,10, 11, 12, and maybe 13,14,15 just to see if I can see my max pressure. What do you think? Also I want to move my coal to 3.900 so I am not in the lands. After the primer failed on shot 3 I lifted my bolt and pulled back but only the case and powder came! Bullet was stuck and powder everywhere. Luckily I always have my range box with me and quickly cleaned up the mess! This is getting fun if I am able to improve the 7,89, group! I also have 3 pounds of H-1000 and 8lbs. of Retumbo. Im thinking of doing a new ladder test with H-1000, would this be a waste of time and money? Please let me know if I'm on the right track, Thanks!
