And by no means do I think 'well if he doesn't, then it's a waste of time' I know that for most people, once you've found that special batch, you can get better groupings by weighing them.

Another friend who's a piston shooter sorts by 1/50th of a grain - takes him 2.5 hours per tin! Works really well for him and his group's shrink up considerably. To make it worthwhile (and have a critical mass of each weight) he'll do them in groups of 10 tins - does it every night for a month!
I just open a tin (from my selected batch) and pour it in my pouch - not because I don't think there might be some merit to the theory of weight sorting, just because I can't be bothered.

It would be interesting to see some downrange chrono results with weighed pellets vs pellets straight from the tin vs overweight pellets vs underweight pellets.
Maybe the guy who spends 2 hours a night for a month weighing pellets could do the test. He sounds like a bloke with time on his hands
