Default Measured vs. Pre-measure

What do you folks prefer measured powder or the the pre-measured stuff.
I do a lot of reloading myself hand guns and rifles so I do know the benefits of measuring powder just wondering what people prefer and why.
Please and thank you.

I use per measured pellets, not sure if I'm correct in that. My friend uses loose powder, he shoots 90 grains of powder with a .50 cal 240 grain round, I use 100gr powder with a 300 grain round. Might bump to 150 grains of powder...

For years i used 100 grains Pyrodex RS and two 50 grain Pyrodex pellets interchangeably in my CVA guns. Both loads shot to the same point of aim. Velocity is 1,700-1,750 fps when used with a 240-250 grain saboted bullet.

I always measure my own loads.
I shoot side locks and revolvers and pellets are not regarded for either.
