    Oh I see, I did not notice the info was removed. I liked his idea of shooting two groups of the some load to confirm the group. Especially on windy days.

    Weird. Wonder why it was removed? Yes, that is a good idea. I usually shoot 5 shot groups with plenty of cooling in between shots.

    I average five three-shot groups for my group size for that load. I allow for adequate cooling between groups.

    Its amazing what just changing the primers can do to the size of a group. I first tried the Federal 215 Mag Gold Metal primers and got OK groups approx .800 inches at 100 yards. Then tried the regular Federal 215 Mag primers and got the group above. This group was out of my factory plain jane Remmie 700 SPS!! The only work done to it was adjusting the factory trigger to a nice crispie 3 lb pull.

    Nice group. Was it consistent? What load did you end up going for?

    Nice shoot'n..........that load looks like a keeper.

    As far load testing goes, I also shoot 3 shot groups. For me, 5 shot groups just adds additional presure on the shooter and lends itself to shooter error. With adequate cooling between shots, a 3 shot group should tell you all you need to know. IMO
