The reason I ask the question about sorted weigh between batches
was because as Dlebeck observed just because it's all the same weight
doesent make it shoot well.

I prep all of my brass the same way, (size,trim,deburr primer pocket
and then weigh sort to within 1 gr ,Then load the same load in each
weigh batch to find out what case volume the rifle/pistol prefers.

In my load data I make note of make of brass and weigh so I can
duplicate the load with different brands of brass if i need to,it seems
that as long as I keep the weigh(volume) the same the load performs
the same.

This could explain the reason that some rifles/pistols like different brands
of brass because of the weigh/volume difference.

So if you have a pet load write down the weight of that brass, who knows
it could come in handy some day.

And Roy I'm still interested in how you came out weighing your nosler brass

All good information that's why I like this web site ,I learn something
every time I log on.

Nosler 300 RUM Brass-Roy

Roy, glad to hear you are trying Nosler brass for the 270 AM. I also bought some to try, tired of the Rem crap.
Let me know how you are doing, I'm using the 169.5 gr with my 270 AM. I did weigh a batch of 50 and they were all amazingly close.
Kirby said to start with lower loads and work up, said Nosler was softer brass.

Thanks and keep in touch.
