Lastly I graphed out the nine 30×60 XCB tests by bullet weight and group size.  This gives us a “visual” comparing the group sizes vs. the weight increments.  Between the graph and the actual on target performance it is pretty obvious that weight sorting is beneficial to increased accuracy.

Caveat;  Many of you think of weight sorting as simply sorting by weight (usually in .1 gr increments) and then shooting those in those weight segregations.  The thinking is that accuracy will improve.  As most of you know accuracy improves perhaps a little but most often doesn’t using that methodology.  The technique I use is to weight sort to eliminate potential flyers by selecting the heaviest bullets of each batch cast.  Those are the bullets that are most consistent in fillout and thus the better balanced which gives the best accuracy.  These 2 tests demonstrate that.
