Earlier today I was watching some U tube videos of guys weight sorting before any case prep was done. How many people actually prep there cases thoroughly before performing weight sorting? By doing this process you would be surprised how well bulk brass weights out.

There’s tons of them. I think the last one was called road to precision.
Thanks, I'm on a metered network and videos gobble up the usable data.

I weight sort after its been fired once and all trimmed to length.
Volume is better if you wanna take the time.
I've found over the years that weight sorting after initial processing and fire forming makes the most sense.

Never have weighed the brass I shoot. I have about 8 wildcats and a few standard rounds.
Not saying it wouldn't help but if I can get 1" groups and sometimes smaller at 100yds from my bolt action pistols and break open pistols, I'm tickled.

High quality brass is pretty consistent weight wise. Rem, Win, Horn, and Fed can be all over the place. I do FULL case prep for these. Lapua is pretty good weight wise, but their necks can vary 1.5 thou. I usually at least skim turn Lapua necks. ADG and Peterson seem to vary less - at least in the 2 batches I have.
