Keep the shiniest ones because they will slip through the air gooder!

OK, here's the real story;

I've been reloading for about 10 years, all handgun calibers. For me handgun accuracy is less important than whether the round will function reliably in all my firearms. I have very recently entered the world of long range rifle shooting. Had some startup accuracy challenges with the hardware which Speed3 was kind enough to help me sort out with a range day last week. The hardware is fine. I want to begin the process of reloading highly accurate ammo for MY rifle. towards that end, I'd like to self asses the supply of bullets I have in hand to see whether they are sufficient or should be relegated to loads for 30-06/M1. I don't mind spending $$ if I'm getting value. I get really annoyed spending extra $$$ for a name that doesn't equate to more accuracy/better quality. Hence the request for a method of assessing the bullets.

Easy.

Match bullets shoot better at long range than non-match bullets.

Heavier bullets tend to have a better BC, more better for long range. However, heavier bullets have lower MV at the same round, which is less better.

Some bullets are better than others. Like the 175 grain .308 Sierra Match King versus the 168 grain SMK for longer ranges.

Pick the gooder ones, and give the others away, or use for other purposes.
