When an unexplained flyer occurs, remove that piece of brass and toss it.

The unexplained flyers will become less common.

The shooter induced flyers will still be a fact of life.

Nice shooting! up

Very nice, except for the flier!!!

Do you know which shot it was? Last shot? Years ago when I shot 260 Rem, I would get a strange weird flier. I marked the case, and reloaded it and tested it again. Sure enough, that same case would cause a flier. I marked it, and used it as a fouling piece of brass. I just kept track of that piece and made sure I didn't use it.

Interesting. Back in the 80ís when I was loading and shooting for my 220 Swift heavy barrel M77, I bought loaded Norma ammo and shot it and reloaded. When I got fliers, I marked them like Jeffbird, and if it happened again I tossed them. I finally wound up with some great cases, and with Norma I got a lot of reloads out of them, and almost eliminated the fliers. But...from time to time the uhhhh sun was in my eyes...and there would be a flier.

Tack, whats the barrel length of your rifle? What muzzle velocity are you getting with 42.0 H4350?

TackDriver, you're saying the wind was changing between a headwind and 90 degree crosswind? Either way, very nice shooting. I have a rifle that can do that. I can't.

Notice that Chad won that last match? He still is holding onto a few trade secrets and the whole world's supply of F210M's!

If I weighed brass, I bet I'd find the one that would cause a flier. All my rifles have a 200 pieces of brass minimum, most have 300 to 500. Weighing brass is not another project I want to add to the mix.

I tried weighing brass for awhile and never really found it worth the time required. I completely gave it up after using the throw flier in the trash method, which does help. Some cases feel different when seating a bullet, and those I have started marking and setting aside in their own group for practice, but probably should toss those as well.

It might matter at the benchrest or F-class level of comps, but not to trying to keep 1/2 MOA.

Just tossing the brass that is associated with flyers seemed to work better and way faster.

Evaluating time sinks vs. results is important. Brass prep seems to consume 90% of the reloading time.
