A great start! I use to always be a die hard 3 shot group developer until i started running my developed loads in 5 shot groups.

A real eye opener.

Test, test, and test some more!

In the past I’ve always done 5 shots, you know when you could walk into the store and buy boxes of primers for 35 dollars. I’m not short on primers, just being conservative. This was a powder test to see if I was going to be over pressure. I’m gonna load 5 a thousandths longer, 5 two thousandths longer, and the same shorter

Care to share what the cartridge and load is?
If that is a 6.5CM w. 156, you are doing awesome.
If that is a 7RM pushing a 168, you are good to go.
If that is a .300RUM with 150s, you are way slow.
If that is a .22-250 running 40s, you are not even in the ballpark.
