    Save your money. Buy a good beam scale and a trickler. Seriously. Do a search of the problems people have with electronic scales. Near as I can glean, life expectancy is about 4 years before they need to be scrapped or revamped. My best beam scale was 2nd hand 3o years ago. Still dead on.~Muir

    I've had my MTM electronic since about 1993...still works. Weights still good and was good value at £150 considering the use it got when I was loading 10K rounds a year back then...
    However, it wasn't "tat" and I'd be very careful about some of the rubbish I've seen of late.
    How about the scientific types around £300?
