Ok all, So I have finally purchased pretty much everything I need to start reloading. I have read lots on this, watched some YouTube videos and of course read my reloading manuals. I have a few final questions about load development. First off...let me tell you my expectations...baring there is nothing wrong with my rifles...I am hoping to develope loads for each rifle that will get me under 1MOA...half MOA would be optimum. The farthest shots I can take hunting are around 450 yards so I do not need better than that. Questions as follows. 1. I have two powders to first start tests with. How many different loads with each powder will you make? i.e. do you start say at half way between minimum load and max loads and then make 3 batches to start? For example...middle load = 55 grains, max load equals 62 grains...so first load is 55 grains second load say 57 grains and third load 61 grains? Then, if say 57 grains is most accurate...maybe you create a few more batches with smaller increases to try and get better accuracy...like 56.8 grains, 57.3 grains, and finally 57.5 grains. 2. For each of these bullet batches...how many rounds will you make? I would like to try to prevent waste i.e. I dont want to make 20 rounds of each load just to find out that the particular load shoots like crap after 3 or 4 shots. If 5 rounds will tell me how accurate the load is then great...if I should make more so be it. Again...I am not in competition shooting(yet haha) this will strictly be for hunting and just a bit of target shooting. I would like to get under 1 MOA, half MOA of course would be better, again as long as my rifle can do it and of course I do my part as the shooter. So I would like to keep the reloading to its basics at first...I wont be measuring how far the bullets are off the lands and such...not now anyways.(Dont even know how to do that haha). But I will keep everything SAFE, I will watch my pressure signs and overall case lengths and such, but as far as accuracy goes I would like to try and keep things a bit simple at first so I do not get overwhelmed. Thanks in advance for your help.
