I have tried three different powders and several different bullets etc. I think I have finally found a load that will do the trick.
Which one would you pick? I put a dime in for size reference.
The top one is only a 3 shot group the other is a 4

Good groups! What were the velocities? Choose the load that gives you the highest velocity and hopefully the smallest standard deviation.

The one with the best ES/SD numbers because with seating depth/neck tension/primer adjustments I'd bet I could get either one of those to shoot like the other.

either one, of course choose the one with best fps deviation which will make a difference at long range. Don't get to hung up on the faster round although its good speed is a factor.
