Osupoke thread on bullet accuracy problems got me to thinking.


Many times, more like EVERY gun in EVERY caliber, has a favorite bullet, weight, design. But, has anybody ever found a bullet that was accurate with a particular powder, but no charge weight of another powder could be dialed in?


My .30-06 loves 150 gr Sierra bullets. Using 4064, 4350, 4895, W760, Vh N150, RL19 or 4831; makes no difference. Work up a ladder and I get a load that shoots.


7RemMag likes 140gr bullets, some slightly better than others, but any140 shoots better than 150, 150 shoots better than 160. Again, powder doesn't matter.

Does powder not matter, within the constraints of pressure and case capacity?
