6.5 bullet 142 MK\'s O.A.L. Question
I just did an O.A.L. test on my 6.5 142grn MK's. I measured 126 bullets for an O.A.L. The spread for 83 bullets measured form 1.371 (the shortest) to 1.386 (the longest) and only a few of these were within .002 of eachother. I was able to get 43 bullets to measure within .002 of eachother. The 0.A.L. of these bullets measured between 1.375 to 1.377. I will load these for my longrange group testing. My qeustion is, I want to be very consistant for longrange shooting, so is it important for the bullets O.A.L. to be within .002 of eachother or is it ok for that much of a spread, in O.A.L., to occur. Any help would be great, I am trying to learn everything I can. Thanks for the help, Wildcat.
