Re: Question about brass sorting
It really depends on exactly what level of accuracy you are trying for. Most stringent guys I know, only sort to +-.1 gr. Even then what differences are you weighing(case heads, walls etc)? H2O capacity is the only thing that you can truly weigh. Most will only sort to 1/2% of the weight (200 gr case sort in 1 gr lots) and that will not make a difference at 1000 yds in match BR guns. Now a lot of the 1000 yard shooters will shoot each piece of brass and throw away any piece that continually throws a bullet out of the group. They number each case in a group/lot etc so they can track it. That seems to work, but it is extreme workd to do that. If your gun is not a tight neck (upi said no neck turning)and shooting 1000 yards, you are way past the point of returns for work. Most have found after sorting to 1%, gains are in bullet selection in sorting by length of bearing surface etc and good load development but only if you have tight neck gun and. Buy a power screw driver and sinclair power case head holder with K&M neck turning tool. Lowes and HOme Depot selling the B&D with versapac interchangable batteries for $26. Easiest way to do it. Do it in lots as you use them.
