Everyone spends so much time trying to be right on the money when doing there powder charge but how many of you weigh your bullets first?

I first sort the bullets from a Lot# in groups of .001" measuring the Ogive to Base length. Then I trim the Meplats, resetting the trimmer for each length. As I fill the loading block with charged cases of either 5 or 10 (depending on LG or HG) I pull bullets from one length group at a time and weigh the bullets to sort for weight. A 5 shot group of loaded rounds will have 5 bullets of the same length (Ogive to Base), same Meplat Diameter and exactly the same weight. A HG group gets 10 exactly alike. I have a little trick for sorting cases, but I'll keep that to myself :thumbup: Never ever mixing cases from a certain 5 or 10 shot group.
