One of the first and best things my dad taught me in my edumacation on reloading was "1 gun - 1 load".

Goes for semi-auto pistols, revolvers, any and all rifles. Period.

I have a pair of .222 Rem bolt rifles. One is a circa 1953 Sako heavy barrel 1:12 twist tack driver that has spolied a lot of young kids shooting something with virtually zero recoil and 1/2 inch groups all day, and a custom built mannlicher on a 1960s Sako action and a 1:10 twist Douglas barrel. Mannlicher shoots 3/4 inch groups hot or cold, rain or shine. The "sweet" load in each rifle is totally different! And the 1:10 twist loves the 69 and 70 grain bullets a LOT. It would be my "live off the land" and "trunk" gun before even my SOCOM.
