Known as you are for upping the velocity Gary, what velocity are you pushing them out of there now? What FPS do want to achive?
PS- Good shooting for the 16 thou
Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position
As discussed by the miracle of telephone earlier earlier today - your results are an object lesson for the armchair, never-tried-it, but know-it-all- 'reloaders' on here who claim that whacking in n grains of do-dah always does the biz. Fair play to you for worrying about the nth degree of accuracy, and the nth degree of humanity. You are the better man for it, in my view.

great group you have there. i wouldnt be to worried about the speed if your up in the high end of the powder charge anyway. that will be more then fast enough.
i ues to run my 222/250 pretty fast. but now have backed off abit. as the groups are better.
i would much perfer the rifle to be accurate then flat out speed
