Ladder test for 270

I worked a ladder test at 200 yds this past saturday. I only did to rounds of the ladder test.

Remington brass (from corlokts)
130gr NBT

I believe i have a node between 58-60gr.

What is the next step?
Do i work another ladder with smaller increments between 58-60gr or do i do the OCW test now?
or do i just shoot for groups?

Nevermind, I saw the update with the powder.

What I do is do a second ladder with .3 gr increments

Then take the best mode from that and load up enough to shoot 5 shot groups.

Then I take the best from that and move on to trying different OAL until I find that sweet spot. Then I am good to go with a load until I need a new bottle of powder then I have to back off a few grains and start again.
