I noticed last year during load development on a rifle with a stock pack that wasn't properly adjusted, that I was slightly side loading the rifle. As my charge weights increased, and recoil along with it, my shots started stringing to the right. The gun was about an moa shooter, but at 300 yds it was consistently moving to the right. Probably wouldn't have noticed at 100 yards. As long as charge weight was the same, I could shoot at various ranges and still be on target. Load development simply showed a flaw in my setup/shooting form.
