HANDLOADED FOUL ROUNDS I will be cleaning my rifle after 50 shots, including my 5 foul shots (after the study I’ll only need 1-2 foul rounds, or so I think before I’ve seen the results). Since the main study requires 266 groups with 5 shots each group, that means I’ll need about 150 fouling rounds ((266 groups * 5 shots per group)/45 groups per trip = 30 barrel cleanings, 30 x 5 = 150 foul shots) during the shooting. I want a few groups of foul shots to make sure I limit environmental impacts and get decent, meaningful, statistical results. Hence, I’ll collect more than 1 ‘foul’ target over the course of the shooting. One of the big questions I have right now is what load to use for my foul shots. I want to pick something decent, and not just randomly pick some charge weight and hope. So, since I’ll be using the ILDM and OCW I figure I’ll use those results to quickly point me in the right direction. While I’m shooting for the ILDM and OCW, I’ll use some of my existing PMC Bronze ammo as foul rounds- I might even be able to glean some results by comparing these foul rounds to my past performance with PMC Bronze.
