Just looking at box of Federal 100g SP's I picked up a while ago, almost all the cases have minor dents in them at various places, and I know from my brother in law's, his cases have small dents in them everywhere..WTF is Federal playing at! definitely sticking to norma brass for my reloading!!!!!
Whilst I was at it, I stuck the 20 rounds on my scales, and they weight between 217.5 grains and 223.6 grains,,,now if I bothered sticking them into excel, I could show you the variance/deviation charts, etc. but....
In any case, I think that kind of range is CRAZY I assume the brass and bullets weigh pretty much the same, so I can only imagine its variance in the powder loadings
Then I stuck some 100g Norma SP's on the scales, they varied between 220.5 and 221.3,,much better
Then I put my 87g hornady bullets on,, vary between 87g and 87.4g - tested around 10 only.
