Shoot five and see what happens. My thinking has always been three test the rifle and five tests the shooter. Could be something small with your loads or it could be you. Try shooting one at a time from each charge then go back and shoot the second for each charge then the third.

Also are you getting the barrel warm or taking your time between shots so it doesn't get too hot.

Sound advice.

Cept, 3 tests the load, 4 tests the rifle, 5 tests the shooter. Daniel, what position are you shooting these from?

I suck at shooting off a bench, it is just not comfortable for me. I also don't like shooting groups becuase you loose your aiming point so sometimes what I do is hold at the center of the little dot but put in a half mil elevation or so that I can keep my same aiming point every time.

Five is all you need to know what you need to know.

I will make you hate a bench! Especially with a heavy recoiling rifle like the 300 Win Mag.
