Weight Variance on 200 gr. Accubonds

A while back, I remember reading something on a thread about weighing bullets and grouping them accordingly. I recently bought 500 count of the 200 grain AB's. I guess I got bored watching TV and began weighing & separating the remaining 487 bullets. Here are the results:

Weight - Count (%)
199.5 gr. - 32 (6.6%)
199.6 gr. - 39 (8.0%)
199.7 gr. - 50 (10.3%)
199.8 gr. - 64 (13.1%)
199.9 gr. - 82 (16.8%)
200.0 gr. - 107 (22.0%)
200.1 gr. - 53 (10.9%)
200.2 gr. - 42 (8.6%)
200.3 gr. - 7 (1.4%)
200.4 gr. - 9 (1.8%)
200.5 gr. - 0 (n/a)
200.6 gr. - 0 (n/a)
200.7 gr. - 1 (0.2%)
200.8 gr. - 1 (0.2%)

Now what? While I was surprised at the variance in weight between the bullets, I don't think this variance will have much effect on my POI downrange (excluding the two bullets at 200.7 & 200.8). Am I wrong in this assumption? If so, how should I group and shoot the bullets? Should some be used just for fouling shots? Opinions welcome.

Unless you are shooting a match grade rifle my guess will be that there will not be a difference in accuracy if you mix and match.....but then again confidence is everything.
There was a time when I did what you are doing....it didn't pay off for me.
