    Ammunition Accuracy

    What makes one brand of ammunition more accurate than another?

    I always thought if the gun will shoot it, then the gun determines the accuracy.?

    I have heard some say that certain brands of ammo are not as accurate as others.

    Consistency.
    In weight of projectile, powder.
    In size, OD of projectile, casing.

    Good question and good response, I might add that the quality of the components used would probably have some effect on accuracy also.

    It is absolutely true that some (most) guns are more accurate with a particular brand and bullet weight. The advantage od reloading is that you can experiment and fine tune a load for your particular gun, a load no one produces commercially.
