ok so, the gun is a stock 26, i started reloading to save a little money and have fun in the process. i wanted a soft shooting 147gr round. my components are Berrys 147 gr RN, GBW brass, CCI small pistol primer, and Titegroup powder. My first batch i did 3.2, 3.4, 3.6 gr with a COAL of 1.165. Every 10rd mag i shot had two to three nosedives. So, my next batch i did 3.6 and 3.8 gr with a COAL of 1.145. Still had three nosedives out of one hundred rounds. My last batch was 3.8 gr with a COAL of 1.130. Again had three nosedives out of one hundred. The shortest COAL i can load to with this bullet is 1.124 but that small difference seems negligible and i don't want to waste the time and supplies for the same result. i replaced the mag springs thinking that would help and it didn't. i used the new springs in the last batch. all factory ammo has shot flawless. it has to be the reload and i can't think of anything else to try short of starting over with all new components. please any input is greatly appreciated.
