    I was reccomended to try the MyWeigh scales (http://www.myweigh.com/precision.html) and bought the 101 model. They have proven to be excellent and I would thoroughly reccomend them. I have tried beam scales and smaller electronic scales (e.g. Hornady) before but it is the MyWeigh now sit on the reloading bench.

    beam scales every time mine are so old they are hornady but I think just after they took PACIFIC as they were still using the old mould.they can never go wrong electronics do.

    Beam scales for sure. We bought some RCBS electronic scales and there could be as many as 5 individual grains of powder difference before the weight actually changed ! Stick with the beam scales where you can see the differance even one individual grain makes.

    I use these electronic scales and have just had them serviced (for free) : http://www.djblabcare.co.uk/djb/prod..._VICON_VIC_123

    but you will see that they have been discontinued and there is a link to the replacement scales. These scales display to 0.02 grains and you can see the effect of adding a grain of powder. I find the electronic scales very effective for weighing powder and brass. I wouldn't be without these or a similar scales.

    They certainly sound much better than the RCBS jobbies we have sat under the bench!

    I wouldn't want to be without my RCBS Charge Master 1500.
