    I recommend Redding Model 2 scale or RCBS 505, both good scales.....p.s. I have the Redding scale which I like a lot.

    I actually use a mini digital scale. These are available from fleabay at about 6 (very popular with 'herb' sellers . Get one that measures from .01 gm (.15 grain) up to about 100 gram. I use a very light receptacle (made out of an aluminium tea candle holder) which you can put on the scale then 'Tare' it (eg reset to zero). Keep adjusting the powder dispenser until you throw the right weight and hey presto. There are a lot on the market, make sure the one you get displays in grains as well as grams etc.

    i use the lyman accu touch 2000 digital scales
    Comes with calibration weights, trickler, and powder measuring ladle and costs about 120 quid so similar cost to a rcbs 505

    Or..... if you are loading for the Hornet, use Lil Gun powder and fill the case to 1/8" from the top. Seat any bullet from 30 to 40 grains!

    Get a beam scale. Forget cheap digitals.~Muir

    A Lee beam will do you fine with a little patience.
