1. Shooting groups (of rounds) at a target...
gives you a more accurate feel for the accuracy and the trajectories that certain loads will produce, as you will see this in the "groups" (grouping" of the shots. It compensates for variables such as atmospheric conditions, temperature of the barrel, poor trigger discipline or technique of the shooter, etc.

Shoot a few (3?) of the 30 grain, then the 35s, and so on.
