Re: Accuracy on my first loads with a 30-06
Before I do any load development I make sure the barrel is squeaky clean. No copper, no nothin, just barrel. Wipe-Out works the best for me. Then I fire a couple fouling shots and start the process.
4-5 inches sounds like more than what a ladder test can over come. Time for some more details. Rifle, scope and mounts?? Did you weigh each charge? Neck sized, FL sized, OAL, Bullet type, ya know stuff like that. The more details the easier it is to help.
