    Charge or Seating Depth first on ladder test?

    I am developing a new load and am unsure whether to run a ladder test on charge weight first, or seating depth first. I usually end up alternating iteratively between the two for a few tests since each influences the other, probably wasting time and rounds, something that I cannot afford to do...

    Where to start OAL or powder charge?

    I am new to reloading and now that I have a couple hundred rds through the barrel I want to try to find what it really likes. I have a Remington 700 5R, .308, 24", 1:11.25 twist. If I load to the standard 2.80 OAL I am jumping .155 with SMK 175's and .139 with Scenar 155's. So, my question...

    which has more value- powder charge or velocity

    TO clarify my question, I'm dropping a "minimum recommended" powder charge as starting point, But my measured velocities are almost at the maximum. I;m trimming cases to .008 under "sierra" manual. Should I be concerned about bullet depth (OAL)? I'm not sure where to look. Thanks

    Dropped my Varget charge by .5 grains...

    I am working on a new load for my rifle. I have selected berger 155 hunting vlds and am using r-15. After researching about loading vlds and reading the berger bulletin about them, I selected a near max powder charge of 46.0 grains, then loaded some work up single rounds in half grain...
