If ultimate accuracy is your handloading goal, the Sinclair Bullet Sorting Stand #59-2000, is a “must-have” tool on your loading bench.
With a perfectly flat, black granite base for stability, this Sinclair tool uses a caliber-specific, bullet comparator and a dial indicator to quickly sort bullets by their length from base to ogive. Segregating your bullets into batches that vary no more than +/- .005 inches in length will tighten your groups significantly. Even finer tolerances will yield additional improvement.
Obviously bullet sorting works best if you start with several hundred bullets from a single manufacturer’s lot. Most established bullet makers have excellent quality control, so all of your sorted batches should shoot well. However on rare occasions, you may need to discard a bullet that falls well outside the normal range.
Simply drop each bullet nose-down into the caliber-specific bullet comparator and place the dial indicator onto the base of the bullet to read its length. Depending on how tight your tolerences are, you may end up with five to 15 separate batches of sorted bullets. Although each of your batches vary in length, all will invariably shoot better than unsorted bullets.
Sinclair Quick-sorting Comparators for use with the Sinclair Bullet Sorting Stand are available in most popular calibers.
