Wouter there is a thread on the Hide in reloading about digital scales. I didn't see this one mentioned (not that that means anything). I've seen a bunch of scales on e-gay, but most only went down to 0.5 grain  accuracy. What is the smallest weight it is supposed to weigh? I was thinking of getting another digital scale to double check my Lyman electronic trickler and scale, but can't seem to find anything accurate enough under $130.00.

I bought this scale the other day for about $75. The scale weighs to 0.2gr accuracy. I have tested it against another electronic scale and my balance beam and found it to be accurate. It seems to be a very neat compact unit.

The disadvantage is that it does not respond very well to the trickler. So the reading would stay the same while trickling and then suddenly jump .5gr or so.
However, as I trickle, I lightly touch the powder pan and then it responds very well.
 
I can recommend it at the price. In South Africa the next best price on scales are $325

  I did the same with my PACT. For a GOOD while I set up it and my 5-0-5 together to keep the PACT honest.  No more.  It does good.
