  • What Type of Scales Do You Prefer????????

    I have the 1010RCBS balance beam and the Pact Digital. I use the digital for weighing bullets and brass but can't make myself change from balance beam for weighing powder charges. I guess i am a hold over from the early days. What do you guys prefer for your loading in scales?:confused:

                I have the Lee, which I prefer for powder and the Lyman 505gr that I use mostly to weigh bullets.

                  When I first started reloading a friend let me use his RCBS balance beam scale. Soon after that I bought a Pact digital. I like the digital a lot better.

                    I have a Lyman balance beam that I've had for over 30 years. I just bought their new 1200 DPS Digital Powder Dispenser last year, and I really like it a lot. Nice and accurate, and straightfoward and easy to use. billt

                        I like balance beams for target and varmitwork and whatever for hunting.I have digital lyman 1200 electric loader that is good for mass producing lots of rounds.

                          I have two Balance Beam scales and one Digital. I use the digital for brass and bullets, but still prefer my RCBS [Ohaus] 304 or the 10-10 for powders dispensing. I find the 304 the fastest of all for weighing powder., and it is as easy to use as anything I have owned. Fairly pricey, but worth every penny. Regards, Eagleye.

                            I prefer a scale that says I am 15 lbs lighter then I am! I have 2 lyman scales and scales weights to check them.

                              I like to weigh every charge I use in my rifles and I set my powder measure to throw slightly short of the weight I want and then top up using a dribbler.

                              When i have tried to use this approach with a digital scale,I find I get very inconsistant results. I have proved this by re weighing the powder a second time and getting a different result to the first...I think its down to the programing the digitals have to stop their zero drifting...

                              So for now, I am sticking with my RCBS 505's untill I can find something either digital or beam balance which is more accurate/consistant at a reasonable price...

                              regards,
