    36FDEE15-E0C9-424D-9CDD-97FA7D57EFCD.jpeg Wind started coming up so I just shot a couple 3 shot groups at 200 just cause. Not much gained but got some practice in.

    Don’t ask why I had left to right wind and all my shots were 2” left at 200 yds :)
    I should be more attentive even up close

    Keep going unless you hit pressure. I run 92-93 in my edge with H1000 and 300’s

    I did in the video page 1. Went to 93 but it was high on 92 and 93. Thanks

    ok thats kind of strange how those thre rounds headed north that much.and the last two shots discount a flyer.your tube seems to not like that bullet.I think if it were me i would set them aside for a while. But that is me good luck with them. but im sure round count could be in play. How many rounds should one use to dial in a certain type of bullet is the question?

    61897B5B-1681-43CB-A2AF-018D9440A1A8.jpeg Very productive day. Shot a finer powder test at 500. Did 3 each of 90.4,90.7,91.0,91.3,91.6
    Calm conditions. What charge are you guys thinking for the seating depth test?

    I would try 91.3 and after working with this bullet awhile I'd do a seating depth test with .010, .015, and .020" off

    Sounds good to me. I am not use to having finicky loads. I had to machine some comparators for the bullets :)

    They're all finicky when the load isn't right.

    In my 338 Edge, and when using 285 Elds or 300 Bergers, RL33 worked the best at max pressure.
    Below that, Id get inconsistent velocities and inaccuracy. And the powder left the barrel pretty dirty. At peak pressure ES was great along with accuracy.
