Wolf Ammo-Pulled bullets Drop in Sierra bullets

Well just had to try this. Bought some Wolf .223 HP. Shot it out of my Win.70 at 50yds. Groups were 1in+. Then I tryed the same ammo pulled the Wolf bullet out, and droped in a Sierra 55gr HPBT #1390. All three holes were touching each outher. Its nice sometimes just to let the brass lay!In this case "Steal"

Want even more consistency? Pull the bullets, and weigh each powder charge. Figure out the average charge. If you have a big enough scale, weigh all of the powder, dividing by number of charges to get your average charge. A lack of powder charge uniformity causes a great deal of accuracy loss in the surplus stuff. Wolf makes great primed brass.
