I’ve already done quite a bit up to this point in my load development. At this point I know I want to try to find an accurate load for Berger’s 168gr VLD over Hodgdon’s Retumbo powder and I’m now zeroed in on a very specific range of powder weights that seem to be very tolerant of slight pressure variances. You can see the previous posts for how I got here.
My next step is to test 5 shot groups in very granular powder increments.
