Hey Unclenick!!! I retried those three loads today...

... I've included these pics at a large size; hopefully I included enough information for you to work with. The first image is what you saw last week; 175gr Sierra Matchking .308 at 100 yards, 5 shot groups. The following three are 15 shot groups at 200 yards; 42.8, 43.3 and 43.8gr charges. Previous test

What do you think?

Thanks for the follow-up. I'm going to be tied up for a couple of days before I get to it. Why don't you see if you can edit in a link to the original thread so folks not familiar with the problem can come up to speed in the meanwhile.

I don't like the POI shift with the 42.8; that didn't happen last time at 100. I guess we see now the advantage of shooting 15 over 5. Not sure where this leaves me; I was expecting better. Try the rest of them for diligence?
