At one time or another most all bullets will weigh slightly different from each other so for
precision shooting at long distances weight sorting bullets is a good idea.
If they have more than 1/2 a grain spread I use them for close range or fouling shots.
For 1000 yard matches I sorted enough to make the match with them all weighting the same.
A 3 grain spread is unacceptable as far as I am concerned even for fire forming.
There are better bullets than that and I would discontinue using them and find a better quality
bullet for all shooting.
