I am doing load up for my REM 700VS in .243 Win. trying to wring the last bit of accuracy out of it. I have been able to get my velocity spreads inside of 1 percent(25 to 32 fps and an average of 3580 fps) and have a load that will pattern 5 shots at.429" at 100 yds., but I wonder if I can improve that if I can cut the spread?The pattern is mostly vertical. I was wondering what kind of velocity spreads you precision reloaders can hold a load to, what you do to get them that I might be missing, or if this is about as good as it gets or needs to be? Here are the steps I am taking. I am weighing and sorting cases fired in my rifle,neck sizing with a collet die,checking neck thickness and concentricity,uniforming primer pockets and flash holes,using match primers,weighing the charges to the best of my ability, and holding loaded length to the closest tolerances.This is a non-compressed load of 41.7 grns. of Varget with a 75 grn. Hornady V-MAX.and a COAL of 2.612".This is .005" off the rifling and seems to be where the sweet spot is.
