I dump the charge into the primered case, immediately pour out and weigh the charge, pour back in the case, seat bullet. This is all on my Lee Single Stage press. Probably made and shot over 10,000 rounds with this method, never had a single issue.
You weigh every single charge, for every round? Damn, must take you 2 or 3 hours for every 100 rounds.

With a progressive, at least for pistol shooting.... you can eyeball how much powder is in the case. Just look at each one and you're good to go.

I'm closer to 50,000 rounds in just over 3 years, no squibs or double charges.
