Hornady round ball weight variations

I was shooting my .50 cal smoke pole today and was seeing a really wide variation in point of impact(shooting from sand bags).Using the same load,patch,primer and ramrod pressure.I had a new box of Hornady 177 grn round balls Figureing something wasn't right I started weighing them the variration went from 176.4 to 180.2 very few (less than 15 out of 85) came close to the advertised weight.Does anyone know of another brand of round ball that have a more consistent weight?I am going black bear hunting this fall and I don't want a wounded critter because of an errant round ball ELMOUSMC
