I'm surprised you guys are so down on post weighing - it can be pretty effective if your components are consistent.
It has to do with developing reliable reloading procedures and removing the gusset work. When I am thru with my run of "X" caliber size I know it is correct because I look in each case. Weighing pistol rounds is guess work because of the small weight variants can overshadow the powder charge.
However, if you are looking in the case and you want to weigh the round also that is your prerogative.
