I took two shots this morning and missed the first one by 2 inches, then shot another without an adjustment which hit the 3 x 3" target. Both shots were about 4.5" apart so I decided that wasn't going to work so I shot 2 other ladder tests.

The first one was with charges greater than the last time I tested these bullets. I tried one specific charge but the group was enormous! So I tried even more powder the next ladder test and even though I got somewhat of a sticky bolt I kept going. I think I did find a good load though, I may have to full length size from time to time but at least I'll hit what I shoot at.
The first few frames of the video are of the ladder test and the group I shot after, I chose a charge between shots 4 & 5. I think I screwed-up that group myself but it is still .666moa. The bullets are traveling slightly faster than the 190gr SPBTs I have been using.
After I shot both shots at the 3 x 3" target I adjusted the scope up one click. I may adjust right one but I'll see what happens in the next few shots first.
One thing I like, (other than being able to hit the target,) is that now I am getting larger craters/dents; I was getting tiny dents before.
Youtube is acting up and is not letting me close the window without canceling the upload. It did that to me yesterday, stupid site!
Here is a pic of my ladder test target and the group afterward.
Ok then, I think this load will do.
