    took my new rifle (savage 110 .243 left hand bolt action) to the range today.

    After getting it sited at 100 yrds I broke out some hand loads and moved in to 50 yrds(good for deer in these parts)

    Here are my groupings and info on the loads. Keep in mind I haven't been shooting in quite some time (4-5 yrs) so the accuracy or lack there of is mostly the shooter not the loads


    using IMR4831 And Hornady 100g SPS - 5 shot groups


    Load 1
    41.2G
    .616

    Load 2
    42.2g
    1.37

    Load 3
    43g
    1.38

    Load 4
    43.5g
    2.16 (1 shot way out to throw off rest of group)

    Load 5
    44g
    1.17

    Like I say these aren't near where I want to be but, for being out of practice and with a new rifle not to bad.

    That is not bad at all with a new rifle working on new loads. Isn"t fun working up loads for a new piece. It will get you into shooting with a new desire. Boon
