I think that 35 yards will definitely show you if a load is in-accurate. If using longer ranges to asses your rifle's accuracy, keep in mind that a mere 5 mph cross wind will drift a .45 roundball about 1 1/2 inches at 50 yards and over 6 inches at 100 yards. Also watch changing light conditions. Bright sun to overcast will change iron sight's zero.
