I am looking for some reccomendations on what other people are using to weigh powder charges. I bought a Dillon Determinator scale but have found that I have to add a lot of powder to see it move on the scale read out. It also has an annoying tendency to drift on the zero.
I am weighing charges in the 7.0gn range and find that at a resolution of 0.1gn's I am getting too bigger error.
The bullet is a 240gn cast lead 44 at 1030fps (similar to a more streamlined bullet at 1000yds or so).
7.0+/-0.1gn will give me 0.6" vertical error at 100yds.
7.0+/-0.3gn will give me 2" vertical error at 100yds.
So far I have found at http://www.scalesgalore.com/oadventure.htm
a Ohaus adventurer AR-1530 at $636US 0-150gm's x0.001gm's.
