Re: Chronographing loads??
I use a Chrony with reloading, I do not shoot much more than 150 yard for anything. Just the area I live in, I have found most of my reloads are more accurate in the Mid-Range loads, I know some bullets perform better at higher speeds, and try to match factory spec, with out loosing accuracy.
Some times this means a powder change, others I may need to start over with a different bullet to get the results I am looking for.
Another example I have been working up a new deer load for this year, what I came up with is a Lyman 170 grain GC cast bullet, being pushed with Red Dot powder at a little over 1600 FPS. Very light recoil, and some real dead woodchucks out to 150 yards.
