Anyone else take detailed notes on their range days. I’ve seen it done in other forums and thought I’d try. See how things change over time and weather conditions. What else should or add I do have a chronograph but didn’t feel like getting it out

This was just running powder charges across looking for pressure. Shot 6 is what I’m shooting now at various depths. 1-4 were .5 increments, 5-7 were .3. 76.7,77,77.3. Settled on 77 for now. The error shot was 3249

Looks good man.
Is that win mag? If so, that’s pretty quick
I’d be really intrigued what that same load would look like at 28*

Yes it’s a win mag. I’m not showing signs of pressure, but it’s over what the book shows. Honestly surprised myself.

Yes I do as well. It helps to look back and know how your rifle was shooting with a particular load in particular weather conditions. Density altitude is also a helpful measurement to record per each session.

Yep, i frequently take notes about the environment.

Here's one from way back and yep, that same exact load still produces the same results. Better scope now, too.

Yeah, it was officially hot. Once it get past 95 no index stuff life gets interesting. As I recall the barrels still cooled down.

You are the kind of guy I like buying guns from. High attention to details means you get something well cared for.
