Sometimes, I wish the Reloading Gods would come down and explain some of the inconsistencies.... Yesterday, I finally chronyed a 308 load that I had developed in a ladder test for my AR10; I also tested a few rounds of a 42.0 grain Varget load (not ladder developed, but someone else's favorite load suggested on the Internet). Same 168gr Hornady Match bullet in both loads and I also shot a pair of 5 shot groups of each with the AR and with a Savage Axis for comparison. Benchmark: 2342fps, ES 49, SD 19.7 Varget: 2457fps, ES 19, SD 7.3 The Benchmark load is under 1 MOA in both guns. The Varget load, which from the chrony data should be more consistent, is a 2+ MOA with both guns. What the heck?
