I can probably weigh a half dozen cases by the time one farts around filling cases with material and then dumps it into the pan for measure.
On the other hand, I have been tinkering to find the point at which I am wasting my time. So far, factory guns with tuned factory ammo is impressive to say the least. They (ones I have tested) all will shoot less than .375 moa @ 400.
On a different note, of all the case prep I do for my custom guns, weighing is probably the least productive but it takes very little time as compared to filling cases with stuff and then weighing the stuff and then finally getting all the stuff out of the case............
So unless someone comes up with a better way to get .2 moa on a consistent basis out of my shooting rigs, I will continue to perform all my procedures (wastes of time).
One of the biggest wastes of time is reading some of the drivel thay you find on these threads by self-proclaimed experts that have limited or zero practical experience with the matters on which they pontificate.
I have found that most folks I observe are limited by their abilities vice their equipement. Heck, most don't even use a mirage shade when they evaluate loads.
