Just weighed the pellets

I pulled out a dozen of the pellets from this container.

The pellets weighed everywhere from 35 to 40 gr. What's that...37.5 plus or minus 7 %?

I know that we don't really care about the weight of the charge, but it sure seems as though that much variation in charge would be of concern to a discriminating shooter (which I am not).

I know nothing about the manufacturing process for these plugs but it certainly seems as though it would be easy to make plugs that weigh the same.

On the other hand, it is possible that the weight of the pellet can not be related to the power in the charge in a given container of the sticks. It is possible that even though the sticks have different weights, they still produce essentially the same power. As I said, I know nothing about the manufacturing process.
