    I guess I should be happy with the 2 inch at 100 yard groups I am getting with a 6x45 using the Lyman 85 Loverin bullet and 17.5 gr of IMR 4198

    in my regular 3x9 hunting 30-06 across 2 boolit designs and 5 powders (1800-2kfps) everything does 2-2.5moa, annoyingly so, im trying to collect data for comparison and everything shoots so similar I have to measure the difference, tried my old jacketed reloads to make sure something weirds not happening and 165 nosler and 185 berger did 1moa and core locks did 4moa for some reason

    I would try different bullets, you may not be in sync with twist rate in the barrel. Heavy for bore size generally works best and most consistently for cast, and I see definite preferences to certain jacketed bullets.
    The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.

    Forget everything you know about loading jacketed bullets. This is a whole new ball game!

    It really depends on which caliber and rifle I’m shooting.

    Humm minute -of-squirrel is my goal,I head shoot the little tree rats nice clean kill
    Accuracy to me is hitting my targets were I need to hit. Little groups are nice to judge your equipment and ability but a 1moa group 3" low isn't going to work in my case.Hitting what I aim at regardless what your shooting.

    Yes I was a 240 of 240 in boot camp also
