I've recently started reloading though it has been a slow process as due to work I haven't been able to get on the range much in the last 12 months.
However, I've been hearing lots of stuff about different loads and so on and I have no doubt that most of it is true for very many people. With factory loads my Blaser R93 shoots all the 150 grain 308 loads that I have tried to the same place as near as I can determine. This seems rather at odds with the experience of others.
Last night I was on the range and managed to shoot a few of my reloads. I was using Reloader 15 powder and started at 41 grains as recommended by my Lyman manual. I worked up to 44 grains in 0.5 grain steps, my Lyman manual puts 46.2 grains as a max load though Sierra puts max for a 150 grain head at 44.8. Anyhow, all these loads shoot to the same point of impact in as far as I can determine.
Now, i wasn't shooting great last night and it had been some time since I'd shot at the range plus I was having problems getting the same point of aim each time so some of the groups were about 2 inches with nothing under an inch. However, they were all centred right on the mark.
So, is my rifle immune to the black magic that some others experience or is it just that I have so little experience that I haven't met up with it yet? I'm really feeling a little left out to be honest.
