Ok guy's I'm new at this. I have a Savage 243 that I am handloading for.I started with 2 boxes of Rem 80 gr. Corlokt. I shot these and the groups looked pretty good so I know the rifle will shoot . I found my bullet and powder that I wanted to use and used the once fired cases. I am using Sierra 85 gr. HPBT gameking bullets with H-Varget powder and CCI 200 primers. I talked with Sierra and they told me to use 35-38 gr. of powder, and an OAL of 2.650". I loaded up 10 each of 35, 35.5, 36, 36.5,37,37.5,38gr loads. The tightest group was at 37.5 gr. I figured this is where I want to be. I loaded up 50 rounds with this combo. They did pretty good but not all that consistant in group size. Do you guys weigh each powder charge and trickle to get each one exact or do you trust the powder measure to stay true. I loaded up 10 today and I had to add to all but 3. Could this cause my problems? I didn't have to add much average of about 3 actual pellets of Varget. Any other ideas would help. I am getting aound 1"-1 1/4" groups at 100 yrds. I know this is ok for hunting but I think that the rifle can do better. It only has about 120 rounds through it.
