Gentlemen

I need a powder scale. Went to E-bay., there is a ton there, digital, conventional, cheap, expensive. What do you reloaders recommend from there to get the job done?
 
Thanx

Read the attached link then go shopping on eBay.

I found a digital scale for $29.95 + S/H.

Here is the one I bought.  Works fine!  Be aware that a scale of this accuracy will be sensitive to static electricity, breezes and flourescent lights.

+2 This really does make reloading easier.  It beats the heck out of trying to trickle in (or remove) a few grains of powder to reach the right powder charge for each load.   If you don't get it now, you will want to get it later!

These are the two I've used for many years and I don't need anything else.

I'll try again.  Something like this will be of proper precision.

These are quite cost effective and should work well

  +4 but I add in the 5-0-5 scale every 8-10 rounds just to be safe and accurate.

  +1 on the PACT. I use to double check it with my old 5-0-5 when I first got it but no more.

+5!! I wouldn't be without mine. When you load high volume like me (10-20 rounds at a time) It's a necessity!Big Grin
