So i've got my first 222CF which i plan to reload. However, in reading there are so many different variables in finding a suitable home load that i don't know where to start.
So far the basic (simple) things i know i can vary are:
Bullet seating depth (overall length)
However this leads to a huge problem, where do i begin?
Lets just say i have 5 different bullet types, 5 seating depths, 5 different loads of powder and 5 powered types, this leaves me with an incredible number of configurations for me to start with. 5x5x5x5 = 625 different combinations, that doesn't take into consideration that i might wish for 5 or 10 of each!
So what do i begin with????
Do i just purchase 1 type of powder and 1 type of bullet head (hornady v-max for example) and then try 5 different powder measurements and 5 different seating depths?
I'm not looking for 0.25moa groups, as i can't shoot this even if the rifle and ammo can! I'm just looking to save money on ammo and at the same time have relatively trustworthy and reliable ammo that's safe and around 1moa if i do my part.
Thanks in advance guys, and sorry for the ambiguity, but for a newbie with so many different combinations i don't know where to begin!
