Your looking for nodes, man!
Just out of interest, are you doing load development with the magneto speed attached?I bought a Magneto speed
I don't know what I'm looking for i know the smaller the S-D the better I shoot 3 10 shot groups. Just how small are you looking for ? Now that I have one how should I be using it?
The target will tell you how well your load is grouping. A ladder test will show you where promising nodes are (similar impact points over a range of powder charges).What does the paper tell you?
So let's say there is a 4 inch difference at 750 yards if I split the difference i would either be shooting 2 inches high or 2 inches low at 750 witch would be acceptable. Or am I looking at it the wrong wayLots of good responses, but wanted to reiterate as was said above that the best way to learn what you are looking for is to plug the fastest velocity and the slowest velocity into a ballistic calculator, individually, and determine what the difference in real drop is at your longest expected shot distance. Honestly, I then add a little 'me factor' to that delta, and decide if I need to improve the ESs. If any of this is confusing, or if you need help with inputting into a ballistic calculator, Feel free to PM me, and I will help/explain.
Thats right, but thats just the error in your ammo, that doesn't include the gun and the shooter which will open it up more than that 4".So let's say there is a 4 inch difference at 750 yards if I split the difference i would either be shooting 2 inches high or 2 inches low at 750 witch would be acceptable.
