    Go Mitutoyo or Tesa - last you for life - I've had my Tesa combination set (0-30mm digi mic - 0-150mm caliper) for just over 20 years and they've not missed a beat.

    Mind you, I haven't dropped them!

    This is the model I have as it kind of matches the green of the RCBS press etc:

    How sad is that!

    If you are looking at budget digital ones, do search for and buy those with auto power off. They are all in the 20 area.

    When I could no longer read my vernier Mitutoyos without glasses, I bought some digital ones. But between me and my assistant leaving them on (I blamed him, and he blamed me) every time I opened the box they had a flat battery.

    I have Brown and Sharp, Starrett, Mitutoyo, but for reloading and most work, the iGaging OriginGauge 6-inch digital 0.0001 resolution is a bargain for $ $38.00 USD.

    Have a look at Cromwell tools own brand "Kennedy" they are actually Mitutoyo with a Kennedy name stamp on them but at around a third cheaper then Mitutoyos.

    Mine came from Aldi, or was it Lidl?
