thx! all for the nice comments! in reality i'll probably never duplicate that group at that distance again but last shoot prior to the shoot the gun was putting in some incredible 2 shot groups at that distance.bullet supply was reason for 2 shot groups & not 3. we all know groups can not get any smaller than a 1 shot group/rite unless there is "yawing" going on
with this load 327mh/I4831 in a large dose the gun has responded well & have had my smallest groups out of this barrel......but/but/but here is the kicker as hillbill & I have had a couple of conversations about. heat/temperature in a small swing's is effecting harmonic's in other words temp sensitive.
if I shoot my old load of I4198 I have a bigger swing on temps but groups are a little larger say around .7-.8 moa.
I am normally a cold weather shooter- temps from 10 to 50 degrees & shooting in higher temps have been very frustrating to say the least for at least competition purposes ime.
6ppc br shooters like Richard,sw & savageshooter from the old board will tell you most load(at the shoot on site) from a harrells powder thrower & document temps/humidity/conditions & log the powder in clicks per conditions at that very moment to get the very best group results.reason-temperature & conditions constantly changing. some preload in different powder amounts & use according to conditions.
so I have been watching my chrono very closely as of late & I see much of the same at least with this barrel regarding conditions & from load to load in higher temps.
there could quite possibly be a perfect single powder match for the 327 but I have not found it yet after 1k + round's downrange w/327's for higher temps across the board.
so I can gamble @ ky & take a more temp stable load & hope for 3 great shots or rest in the middle of the pack or load vials for conditions with this powder //problem is if it is say 95degrees I'm not not going to have any clue for the best performance...maybe go bust... & back to the kitchen! lol all my comments pertain to the 327mh load.
regardless it will be a great time even if I finish last.
Some days a load will just shoot better than on other days. Temperatures, humidity, wind, mirage, barrel condition, bullet sizing, your ability to perceive the center of the target and a host of other things contribute to a good or winning group. But, just like in racing, if you continually finish in the top 5 or 10, you will eventually pick up a win. To be there, you need good equipment and the ability to use it. Richard
