think about load development, working up a charge weight specifically. How often do you see every charge carry the same POI? I've seen it a few times, but usually some will be higher, lower, right, or left.

To illustrate what happens when your primer goes off till the bullet leaves the muzzle. Take a wire coat hanger straitened out and set it on a table edge with 3/4 of the hanger off the table and tap the end of the hanger with your finger. That's what your barrels does, just to a far lesser degree. So if you change one variable about your load, your bullet will leave at a different point in the circle your barrel makes in it's vibration pattern, not to mention that you could also create a different vibration pattern.

Happens with the same bullet as well.
While "most" of the time the faster bullet hits higher I know that I can show you ladder tests where the velocities marched up with the charge but the bullet's point of impact did not.

So to answer the guys question, based on the data you have, the faster or slower load can't be identified by the point of impact.

Correct. You can't guarantee which one is faster or slower based on point of impact alone. Suggested, yes. Confirmed, no.

22-250
400 Yards
50 grain bullet

Hand loads hit 4" lower then factory loaded ammo.
Which is faster?

Same bullet? Same zero? Same shooting conditions? Your questions have been very vague.
