mohr308,

As you can see, actual data does not back up your experience. A guy I know did the same with commercial and 30-06 brass and came up with the same conclusion, military brass falls within the spread of commercial brass of the same caliber. Haven't done this for 308 Win/7.62x51 brass just yet.

Brass Aver. Wt. Extreme Standard
Manufacturer Spread Deviation

Lapua 93.35 (100)1.2 gr 0.31 gr
Hornady 93.88 (50) 1.7 gr 0.43 gr
Federal 96.28 (50) 2.3gr 0.75 gr
LC '04 92.97 (50) 2.5 gr 0.61 gr
WCC 99 95.5 (20) 2.9 gr 0.74 gr
IMG 95.42 (25) 3.1 gr 0.88 gr
PMP 104.4 (50) 3.9 gr 0.93 gr
Radway 96.05 (50) 4.1 gr 0.89 gr
PMC 93.48 (20) 4.6 gr 1.36 gr
Remington 92.33 (50) 4.9 gr 0.85 gr
Winchester 93.91 (44) 6.5 gr 0.96 gr
