    Manufacturing tolerances, bro.

    A 1 grain variance is not going to be detrimental.

    That is what i was hoping was the case. Thanks.

    1000 bulk was $85 otd. 1000 Winchester primers for $25.
     
  9. You're fine. After all, 1gr is 1/7000th of a pound.

    yeah, your good dude. That's within " tolerance ". what kind of bullets? lead? RN? FP?

    Standard Winchester FMJ. Looks like lead core with copper jacket. I'm not that savvy on the abbreviations yet so I'm not sure what you mean by "RN" and "FP". :o
