JLK Bullet weights

Well my JLK order from Swampworks came in this morning, and as usual with any bullet order I weighed them all.
I've been around long enough to know that rarely will two people come up with the same measurements using the same measuring equipment, on the same measured piece.
I'm talking little bitty numbers here not inches......
So I wasn't all that sure that the bullets would be exactly the same as the original JLK's were.
Well I can now rest easy because the weights are as they should be.
Out of the 200 105 grain 6mm's I weighed they came out like this.
2 weighed @ 149.9
9 weighed @ 150.1
189 weighed 105.0
I guess I'll call later today and order a bunch more [:D]

    Well if you ever get a barrel on that wore out BAT action you might have a pop gun to shoot them out of. [:D][:D]

    that weight bullet for a 8 twist barrel?
    What caliber are you going to load them in?

    You were satisfied that 11 of them weigh 45 grains too much?

    mrbruce,


    Typo? 149.9 or 104.9? 150.0 or 105.1? The previous numbers would make me NOT! want to order more. I'm thinkin' it's a typo though and we shouldn't worry right?

    Same quality control as the clinch river pills, but they are scarce as hens teeth.

    GREAT BIG FAT TYPO ON MY PART[:(]
    I was so happy the weights were as they should be I totally poked the wrong numbers.
    104.9 and 105.1 is correct.
    A 10th of a grain one way or the other is pleny good for me on a 105 grain bullet[:D]

    105's will work great in a 8 twist...
    They will go in my 6br if it ever gets here [:(!]
