Reloading Question for competition loads.
I started a thread in the Reloading section, but reader over here might
have some input also.

Read the other thread and it sounds to me like you don`t need the most accurate ammo. My only compative centerfire shooting is off hand at the local club. You really only need ammo that is more accurate than you are. I bought 2000 cheap bullets to try and hopefully use for coyote hunting. I loaded 5 rounds with a middle of the road load and they came in at abt. .600 at 100 yrds. That is far better than I can shoot off handed at 100 yrds. so I never changed that load. I also hsve have bench rifles and long range rifles and I never stop looking for loads that are more accurate. I have 1 rifle that I shot a 2 in. group at 600 yrds., and I`m looking for better, but for off handed AR I need no where closet to that. Just my thoughts.

True, but errors can additive at times; so I would like to eliminate
as much variation as possible.

Thanks for the input.
