Whenever I change a component to a load, I'll preform another ladder test. In that instance, I found the FMJ load to be most accurate with an increase in charge weight.

This is the type of qualifier I was talking about. In my experience changing bullets changes tune, and justgoto is taking the right action here. Without this, POI would change in my guns if I picked from multi-bullet selections in the field.
Maybe I'm missing the context of this question though.

So I practice with the FMJs that are 2/3s the price of the SSTs.
That's not much of a difference to ever worry about, but when you start to look at a .1 or larger difference it starts to show up fast. I personally would not worry about .05 or even .075 in the B/C, but I try to keep my shots under 600 yards.

exactly! Compair a 200 grain flat based bullet to a 200 grain boat tail at 350 yards in a 30 caliber like a .300 mag.
