    Lyman gen 6 or rcbs chargemaster?

    Hi all ,

    On look out for some scales but not sure what ones too get ? The Lyman gen 6 are about 100 + cheaper what's difference ?

    My brother has rcbs I went Lyman due to price .
    Haven't had them directly side by side but we have spoken & we both say they are throwing within .1grn Consistently
    So perhaps it's down to
    a. cost ,
    Or
    b. Personal preference if money no option

    I rate the Lyman & mark aka 1967spud did cracking deal

    The Gen5 had quite a lot of problems with not holding zero etc. I opted for a Hornady LNL auto-dispenser, picked it up for about 130 when we were in Florida. Consistently throws extruded stick powders dead on with the odd +0.1gr.
