I bought one and returned it after the first time I tried it. Crying or Very sad It was slooooooooooooooooooooow. A 77.5 grain charge of RL-22 took over 70 seconds. I can set my powder measure a half grain under and hand trickle faster than that. Plus you have to caliabrate the scale each time and calibrate the dispenser each time.

Unless you have a lot of time on your hands, I would not recommend.

It did seem consistent though.

Probably why it's in the bargain cave Wink I don't have a digital scale, but was thinking of getting one. I borrowed one from my cousin (an RCBS) to weigh a bunch of bullets and cases, and it worked okay. I had a bit of trouble getting a consistent weight, though. I would wait for the flashing to stop and record the weight, and then re-weigh after a bit and sometimes the weight would be different by a couples of tenths. I'm not sure I would want to trust it for weighing my powder charges. What does everyone else use?

Howdy Blaine. Mine gets funny sometimes to, when i am trickiling (is that a word) it seems like i add a half grain before the scale will respond and then when it does i added to much. I bin thinking about goin back to the rcbs 505 it only happens when i am adding. If i put a bullet on it or a check weight it works fine Confused . My digital scale is a cabelas i don't no if rcbs scales do the same thing or not.

Joe,

I just loaded some rounds today and I weighed each charge on my RCBS 505. As a test, I then dumped the charges over to the RCBS digital to see if they would agree. I was very disappointed. The digital would agree about half the time and the other half it was a tenth or so different (sometimes over sometimes under). I was doing batches of 5 rounds of each load, and I checked the zero on my 505 after every 5 rounds. It was always just the same. There were even times when I would dump the powder back onto my 505 (after a discrepancy) and it would still be the same. Then I would dump it back onto the digital, and it would be different again and not necessarily the same as it was before. It made up my mind that if I buy a digital it will have to be a better one than the one I borrowed. Even then, I will still weigh each powder charge on my 505. The digital will be used only for bullets and cases. (or am I just missing something here?

Blaine

PS Have a good weekend !! Laughing
