    The 505 is a good choice - The 10/10 is no more accurate, all the RCBS range, the 502,505,5-10 and the 10/10 all use exactly the same floating agate bearings/knife edge set-up.

    Here's a set of 505's in action:-

    not sure i'd believe that. it very much depends on the quality of the scales in question. a good lab balance/digital scale is gonna be more accurate than a beam scale sold for reloading.
