It is to weed out finished rounds that will not chamber correctly in your gun causing an alabi and also to weed out flaws in the reloading process (like you have failed to crimp the round) or brass that cannot be resized correctly that has a bulged base. I find it easier to sort before I reload and then resize anything that will not pass trough the gauge before I attemt to reload, It has saved a lot of work and expensive bullets, and primers that I don't want to have to extract from a bad case or worse lock my expensive wad gun up in the middle of a match.
