I have been through 500 rounds of these bullets. I have been ordering them by the box of 100. I weight segregate my bullets by .5gr increments. The boxes of 100 have had quite a bit of deviation in weight right out of the same box. Low 229gr up to low 231gr. Also checking bearing surface length I've found quite a bit of deviation ( as much as .012) in the box of 100. I shoot them all in groups that are close to one another and they all do fine.
This last month I ordered 2 boxes of 250 from Mile High Shooting Supply.
After weight segregating the first box of 250 I noticed that I had a much smaller weight deviation. High 229gr to high 230gr. Also noted was less deviation in bearing surface length @.002". All weighing is done with a Sartorius Entris 64-1S. Bearing surface length inspected with Hoover equipment.
Bullet runout has never been an issue with these bullets. I am confident to shoot any of them.
My confidence in the weight of these lots of bullets is growing with these boxes of 250.
In the automotive racing industry it matter significantly as to where you get your parts from. Some vendors buy seconds from the manufacturer and sell them off as top quality. Not say I know this happens but I suspect it could be. Saying that in will also say that Mile High Shooting Supply is NOT selling sub-standard seconds. Thier prices were reasonable and the shipping was fast.
I appreciate thier services.
I'll go 5 stars if I find the second box of 250 to be the same level.
