Weight sorting brass is of no great value because there is no direct correlation between case volume and the actual weight of brass. Case volume is what really matters so if you truly want to be anal about sorting brass you'll measure the internal volume of every single piece of brass you have. It's a VERY time consuming process so nearly no one does it, at least in large quantities they don't.

Most bullets, by weight, are pretty consistent these days so not a lot of benefit there, but if you presort your bullets by measuring base to ogive length it can save you some time at the reloading bench and you'll end up with more consistent OAL on your ammo. Remember, base to bullet tip measurements have little affect, it's consistent base to bullet ogive length that matters.
