Its the trust thing. If someone says to me the pellet is xxx make and xx wieght then I would accept it. The checking of the weight, it would have helped me a few years ago when I managed to mix a couple of 7.9 Premiers along with my usual JSB's. Had a bit of a shock when I fired to through the chrono at the velocity was a bit high. Visually checked the next pellet I grabbed to see it was a premier as well.

Looked into my pellet pouch and saw 3 more in there as well, removed them and checked the rest before moving on from the chrono area..
