Chrono Data - Whatdoyathink?

All - Just shot some reloads on the range with a buddy's chrono. Purpose was to make sure I was not loading too hot and to see if there was any difference between primers. All loads are 123gr Lapua Scenar in Hornady brass with 29g of Win 748 (exception being the one string in PPU brass with Win LRP as annotated in spread sheet).

A little background on the shoot - went out before work, so time was a little compressed (hey - I work and have a wife, I shoot when I can!!). When we started shooting, it was about 50, zero wind and the range was in shade. as the AM prgressed, the temp went up about 15 degrees and the sun came out, still zero wind. Took about a minute between each shot, and probably 5 min between strings.

To get the baseline, I fired 5 rounds of AA loaded ammo in the first string, and 5 rounds in the last string. I did this because I knew I was going to be shooting a little quick and the temp was going to change. As you can see, there is a difference in the chrono results, as at least to my eyes, the rounds got faster.

I would like to match the AA loaded ammo, and I am thinking that if I go to 29.2g this should put me close. Any other thougths based on below info? Any additional insight from the pros out there?

Thanks!! (sorry this is hard to read. Can't figure out how to past an excell spread sheet in a post)
