Truing / Tweaking Quick Load?

I treated myself to a copy of Quick Load for my birthday...and it's certainly a lot of fun to geek out over. That said, I've noticed that there is some significant divergence in real world versus calculated results. I was wondering if any of you have experience tweaking/truing software inputs or a guide for the same?

Re: Truing / Tweaking Quick Load?
Quick load can be a very useful tool but is only as good as the data entered. Main thing is to measure everything including case capacity in H2O, barrel length etc, input those figures. When I get several strings over the chronograph at different charge rates (you need reasonably good SD)
Disclaimer I’m not saying you should do this at all but this is how I do it.
I adjust the Ba so that it matches the averaged velocities of those strings Then check the barrel time calculation then see where I have to go to hit the Optimum Barrel Time or whether I’ll be running into pressure problems trying to hit the next node. The more you use it and a chronograph you build up a data set of how a particular powder actually burns I can get a very good load often straight up without wasting lots of components, then just tweaking seating depth if I can be bothered but honestly if it does 1/2 MOA nowadays is good enough for me. When I was younger I’d chase 1/4 MOA, but I don’t have the time or energy anymore.
