I have to disagree with Boss on this one!!
I have been loading ammo for over 50 years and have tried
almost every thing known to man to try and make my ammo
more consistent and weight sorting has been one of the things
that has helped to lower the standard deviations(Very important
for long range shooting)Reducing the amount of vertical stringing.
Also if weight sorting is not important then how can Nozler and other
premium brass makers charge over twice the cost of non weight
sorted brass and sell all they can make.
Volume has a large influence on burn rates of a given powder charge
and weight sorting is the simplest and fastest way to get the volume
of your cases consistant.
But if you are satisfied with 1 to 1 1/2 MOA then it may not be worth
the effort ,But I like to squeeze ever .001" out of my loads .
Nothing personal Boss just my opinion
