Default Accurace Testing? (FT)

Hello all,

I'm after some advise regarding the best method of testing for accuracy. :

Normally i just sit out at my local range and plink at targets at set distances and dial in to suit. I then pop a sticker on my turret and be done with it. Thing is now i have started competing in competitions i want to spend some time getting the right pellet and setting my ranges absolutely 100% There pretty close but pretty close is the difference between a split and a hit.

I am fortunate that i have up to 25 Yards to shoot indoors so i intend on taking wind out of the equation. I also have the facility to rest or clamp the rifle so i can get rid of the wobble. What i would like to know is at what range should i be focusing on to test my pellet group size to determine what pellet works best? I have a few different type of pellets i wish to try then when i am happy with a chosen pellet i am going to experiment with lube vs dry and adjusting the power to suit my chosen pellets.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks
