I bought a box of Hornady A-Max bullets for my 308 Win. I took a sample size of 10 from a box of 100. The weight was taken from a Mettler AE200 scale and converted from grams to grains. Here are the weights as follows:

154.75
154.99
155.23
155.24
155.28
155.12
155.01
155.30
155.14
155.24

The spread from high to low is .55 grains within this sample size. How much of a difference will this make in pressure with all other factors being equal? Is this a normal spread in weight with match bullets? Or do I have way too much free time on my hands and need to take care of some yard work? Let me know what you think.

The small difference in weight will have little effect on target. The factor to focus on is your ogive to base differences, sort accordingly.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
