Too late to start a data book?

I've had my Savage 10 about 10 years now, maybe 150 rounds shot through it. I've never kept records on it (obviously), but I'm starting to get a bit more serious about longer distance shooting.

Too late to start a data book? Or just do it and drive forward?

Starting a data book is pretty easy. You can use one of the pre-made ones or create one of your own to meet your own needs. I’d start with a pre-made one until you get used to it and know what you’re looking at.

As for round count, that’s used to track the barrel life, dependent on the caliber. If you think it’s 150 rounds, then just start there. Do some research on what the average barrel life for your caliber is so you can start tracking the change in accuracy as you near that round count.

Other than that, there is a ton of info out there on data books, both on this forum and out in the internet wild. There is even some free ones out there you can print out to get you started.
