When sorting pistol straight wall cases shaking them will cause the cases to stand on the heavy end (head) of the case, after standing the cases up I lay plate over the cases and flip them over, then I sort by head stamp, after sorting the cases are kept that way, when loading on a progressive press I match brass by weight, weight the bullet, powder and add the weight of the primer, when finished the cases should weigh the same + or - very little, it takes me less time to weigh 45ACP rounds than it takes me to build another pistol, or purchase one, for insurance I use a lock out die when using straight wall cases.

When loading the old fasion way I use mixed head stamps.
