I have learned a lot about bullet casting from the many contributors to this forum. For this I am grateful, for on occasion what I have learned shows up on the target. One thing raises my curiosity though,and that is the attention to detail and obsession over each and every aspect of casting and loading so many of you display in your commentary. I am the same way in many aspects of my various interests, which is why I enjoy this forum so much.
One goal is to create cast bullet ammunition that is equal to or more accurate than factory jacketed. Sometimes I wonder if the self-established high level of detail and standards set for creating perfect cast bullet ammunition isn't higher than what is employed at the "factory".
My question is, what are factory quality standards for components and loading procedures? How stringent are processes considering many millions of rounds are cranked out annually. Noticed Federal has set up a custom shop for ammo.
Thanks again for all I am learning!!
