BULLET INSPECTION NEEDED
Jacketed bullets shoot much more accurately than cast bullets, and I’m trying to find out why. I’ve been shooting a lot of jacketed bullets at lower velocities. All .22 cal bullets, that stabilize, shoot accurately; except the .22 cal fmj cannelure bullets. These never shot accurately in the past, either.
The ARMSCOR 55 gr fmj cannelure bullets, three 5-shot 100 yard groups, shot very poorly.
Weights of the remaining 85 varied from 54.9 to 55.9 gr, clustering around 55.5 gr.
EX: Nosler 40 gr Varmageddon bullets weigh 40.0 grains, almost all. Data available.
If the BULLET determines accuracy, then there’s something about these ARMSCOR bullets that makes them inaccurate. 34 of them weigh 55.5 gr; I’ll shoot some of them to see if they’re accurate. But, I’d like someone to inspect/measure some of these outliers to see what’s different/off. Anyone?
