Inside 300 yds you can probably do fine just like you are. The higher numbers will start to hurt things way out. For what you are doing with that bullet, I`d just keep on dropping them.

I would probaby just keep dumping. However, I would weigh some
just to check and see if it made a difference. I would still
weigh about evey 10th to make sure of no change.

I don't need to tell you this, you know it already. Good shooting.

I weigh every powder charge I load just to verify the weight.

If I am loading alot of rounds, I volume charge them, checking every 5th round to make sure it is still where it needs to be.

Those numbers tell you if you have a good load and good accuracy. They don't always go together. If you get both you've got what you want. It's always fun to play some more. I'm still looking for a load for the 25/06. It's consistant under an inch with SDs of 6 and 7 but I would love .25 inch groups. Those numbers tell me there's something wrong with either the gun or shooter. Surely it's not me (tongue in cheek). I may never see it but it's fun trying.

I had a 6mm load one time that would go single digits ES and shot 2 inches.
