Hi, Slangley:
  This is not a simple question, since barrel whip varies from gun to gun. First, pick a velocity range you want, then load up and try it. If you're not hitting where you want, and BCstocker's method isn't working for you, change bullet weights.  Handguns shoot higher with heavier bullets, but rifle barrels are longer and aren't as predictable.

  Since your big game load is probably close to full snort, you aren't likely to have much room to go up.  Whatever you do, don't go below reloading manual starting loads. Too little powder occasionally blows up guns for unknown reasons. Lyman and Speer list reduced loads with appropiate powders.

  Your bullet should rise above the line of sight at 25-30 yards. Have you actually checked your 30 yard point of impact?
