Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Got the Venezuelan out to the range yesterday and tested a couple of new loads.

It still shoots my go-to load (with the BA .287"/154 grain SPs) acceptably:

Just for fun, I went up 0.8 grains with that one. Still okay:

Most promising, however, since I don't altogether trust the BA bullets for hunting (see above), is the suggestion that I may be able to put together a workable load using those 175-grain RNSPs:

The saga continues. . . .

That's one heck of an improvement! Well done.
