Just was given a Remington Rand when the owner could not put it back together. Problem is the weapon shoots high for me and do not want to change anything since it was made in 1944. Could a lighter or heavier bullet ( if it would feed ) change the point of impact? How about a reloaded round nose 230 gr. round nose reload traveling faster or slow ?
Thanks for any and all help

Generally, the heavier the bullet the higher it impacts and the slower the bullet (with-in reason) the higher it impacts. It all relates to the amount of time the bullet is in the barrel during recoil. BTW, I wouldn't go heavier than 230 gr.

My experience has been that reloading with less powder, drops the point of impact. (This means slower velocity.) Doesn't take that much of a change either. I usually find this out the hard way.
