f*el80guy said: Why are reloads more accurate than factory loads? Is it that you can tailor the load to gun or is it powder choice/bullet choice?
*ronCanadian said: Yes.
*ronCanadian said: You can tailor the load to your specific gun by choosing bullet, powder and powder charge. By working up the load yourself you can find your guns "sweet spot".
L*ngshot said: Yes. This pretty much covers it!
B*gbubba said: AND....you can weigh each charge exactly when in mass produced ammo you get an average charge +/- a std. dev. within the quality control limit
*agleye said: Pretty well summed up. However, once in a while, a person will find a factory load that shoots so well in his rifle that it is difficult, if not impossible, to match by reloading. Rare, but does happen. I am not in the habit of ever buying factory ammo, but my pal found a factory load in his 270 that was a true "zinger", shooting 3-shot groups out of his Remington 700 that were right around ½moa consistently. My advice to him? Go out and buy all the 270 ammo of that lot number you can find, since it will be hard to beat! Regards, Eagleye.

f*el80guy said: Well i just started reloading recently in 22-250 and today in 223 and it hit me why am i doing this. I started on low end with varget for the 250 and the gun loves it so no changes yet. I made up some 223 today to test with h335 as per a phone call to hodgdens. I would think for the load amount you would get better quality control in factory rounds per volume than say my lee anniversary powder dispenser or am i wrong?
