Recent discussion on neck tension and case capacity being important to some has me asking another myth for practical shooting. Whether you are new to cast Bullet shooting or seasoned. We rely on written published information from major sources. In these manuals I have read statements such as, cast bullets are very uniform in weight. Well filled out bullets varying from the average weight by more than 0.2 grains should be considered a minor defect. Variations of more than 0.5 grains should be considered a major defect. Most of us would agree that this makes sense. Have you wondered does this apply to all cast bullets? Think about this. That statement most likely was determined using a specific weight/ caliber bullet. For argument sake probably 30 caliber. Kinda in the middle of caliber and weight. A 0.5 grain from average here seems like pretty good advice. On the other hand a .05 grain on 22 caliber probably not a good idea. Light bullets would suggest voids or air pockets. Unbalanced causing flyers and such. Casting temperature also changes weight.
In yet another manual under powders title. While not actually fired at targets, all accuracy loads have potential for producing outstanding accuracy since uniform ballistics is critical to accuracy on target.You cannot have one without the other. Most of us would agree and assume this is correct. After all a precisely weighed Bullet leaving the muzzle at precisely the same speed will hit the target at precisely the same spot. Really, it might but that depends on more. We all strive to make our ammo as top notch as we can. Why, because we are all looking for that one hole group. Although I’m not arguing the above statements I have found they are only general statements. You may find the extra effort only makes you think your doing better.
