Roland, I would like to think the loads were as close to the same as possible. I have very accurate scales and I measure seating depth in each bullet. I use br4 primers, I clean my brass well and polish the inside of the necks. On the other hand, this was my sons rifle, that I never shoot. Maybe it did actually take me the first five shots to settle in to his rifle. When I say never shoot it, I mean that I haven’t shot his rifle since we sighted the scope in at 100 yds when he first got it. Maybe it was me, but I do plan to retry this test in the next few days since I just cleaned the barrel after this past months F Class match. I will post my results. Thanks to all for the info.
Tony, I like the alcohol idea, I will definitely use that.
