I started out with hot loads with 7828 and had horrible groups also. I switched to RE-25 and about 3200 fps and it tightened my group AND reduced the recoil and blood on my scope with the slower powder. Most folks 'hot-rod' the 300 at first....but pushing 3400 fps is worthless if you cant hit anything with it.
