Thanks for the heads up.
I wieghed a 10 bullet sample of my new batch of Hornady bullets. Variation was from 249.0gn to 251.5gn on this small sample. This is a bit excessive!
They were lot number 2081012
By comparison I wieghed a 10 bullet sample of Sierra 300 gn SMK's and got a variation of 299.9gn to 300.3gn.
So obviously the quality control of these Hornady bullets is not to the same standard. Surprisingly the things still shoot very well.
It is not practical for me to send them back to Hornady, from Australia so I will just have to batch them if I want to shoot past 600 yards.
