Yeah yeah yeah.. I know it's true. With my "Premium" ammunition failing to sell: I decided that I would pull all bullets apart and basically have some expensive brass... I couldn't let that experience drag me down so I had to look at the positive side of reloading. Why is factory ammunition inconsistent? I had 60 rounds to tear apart: All the same lot: I weighed each powder load and the results could be surprising to some.... : each box has it's own column. Weighed out on a RCBS 750 elektronik skale The variance actually surprised me a little. High: 40.0gr Low: 39.4gr Average 39.8gr While the powder was all across the board, the bullets on the other hand were rather consistent. Coming in at 99.8-100gr Too much time on my hands I've noticed that a .3 grain load in my rifles make a difference of hole for hole and half dollar size groups. I now understand, completely.
