    Electronic scales

    Hi , guys got a few pound to spend, i want to get one of the powder scales that measure and trickle once the weight has been placed in ie Lyman RCBS , i've looked and the Sprtsman centre has a few but which one, they are all over 200 + so want to make the best purchace, ive reloaded for years with the beam type and spoons with the powder trickeler but just fancy trying one, with them not being cheap which one and why?

    Don't bother with the cheaper scales they can be frustrating if the compensating feature isn't quick. Putting powder in and having to wait while the scales faff about is maddening. Also some scientific micro scales are so sensitive you can't even breathe in their direction.
    Personally I only use the electronic scales to check my beam balance scales before loading a batch.

    you could always get a targetmaster to use with the beam scales if you do want to automate things a bit

    If the scales in my bathroom are anything to go by, I would never trust anything electronic.

    Beam scales and check weights every time.

    Nothing to fail.

    Beam scales. Treat it like the precision instrument it is and your grand kids will be using it long after you are gone with utmost confidence.~Muir
