I weighed some .30 cal. NOE Hunter pellets I cast today, after throwing any with improperly filled out skirts back in the pot.... Here are the results....

The variation, from lightest to heaviest for both the light pellets and the heavy ones, was 0.6 gr (1.2-1.3%), with most of the pellets being within 0.4 gr (0.8-0.9%).... I think that's pretty good, better than a typical tin of swaged pellets.... even the good ones run 2% or more variation within a tin....

For the ranges normally used, I would expect .5gr. to be just fine with the light air gun 'pellets'.

With large bore rifle bullets, 1 gr. seems OK, even for 1,000 meter shooting but some guys go for .2gr.

The larger the bore, the more forgiving they are of minor defects.

Well done.

Well you could always chuck the few that were on the ends of the weight range back into the pot.... About 90% of the pellets are within 0.4 gr. high to low...
