    From a safety point, if you aren't near max load you would be fine to use it.
    From an accuracy point, variance in powder charges can change things quite noticeably.
    Some calibres of rifles are more apt to show this than others and different powders are as well.
    Myself, I way every charge as well and do just as you did and dump the incorrect charge back in the hopper, or at least a few granules back into the powder trickler and trickle again to get exactly what I want.

    I have a digital scale that I use to confirm the powder drop from RCBS Uniflow Powder Measure. As a back up to confirm I have the RCBS scale as well (not used often, but nice to have). When reloading powder I confirm every 5-8 rds with powder on digital scale.
