I'm working up some long range hunting loads for my 30-06 and 300 WSM. My question is when you are shooting for groups, do you count the first round (cold bore shot) in your group, or do you just shoot one thru the barrel to eliminate the cold bore factor then shoor 3-5 rounds for grouping or do you count the first shot. I usually only shoot 5 rds then let the barrel cool to the touch before shooting again. I've been going out in anywhere from -5 to 15 above zero shooting and testing loads out. My groups are ok, but more fiddling with powder, jump and bullet weight is needed. What's your take on this?
