Powder dispenser?

I was wondering how you all load your rifle you measure and weigh each and every round of powder or do you set your powder measure and weigh until it matches the powder load you want and then just trust your powder measure to dispense the powder accurately?

If you just use the powder measure once you have it set where you want it how close will the powder measures be? If you use this means what type of powder dispenser do you use?

How much does the powder play into the accuracy of the load? What if you are off by say a couple of hundreths? A couple of grains difference?

Currently I measure and weigh each and every load and was wondering if there is a way to load my rounds and get the accuracy that I am getting now and be able to do so a little faster? It takes me quite a while to load my rounds.

How much does your measure very from one throw to the next to the next ect. If they only very a couple of 10ths of a grain,use your measure and load them up, unless of course you're going for max accuracy.
