    I bought a bag of Sig Saur 308 Win brass from Cabela's. The min weight was 171.2 and the max was 173.8. Mean weight 172.97 gr. Is that good/average/bad?

    You are right that end results are the only thing that really matters but I read that people weigh and sort/cull their brass. I guess I'm really asking is for the people that do weigh/cull brass, would you bother culling any brass in a batch like that based solely on weight?

    That small of a variation won't matter. There's so many other things that make much more of a difference. Measure the neck thickness if you have the tools and prepare to be very impressed.

    Did you size, trim and deburr first? Couple grains isn't bad
