Pact powder dispenser

If anyone has positive or negative advise please let me know. I have heard that the RCBS is probably the best but I don't reload in a large volume and would like to know if this product is acceptable. Thanks in advance for your input.

    Have been using the scale and powder measure combo for years now and besides being alittle slow has been a great product. I hear the new one is much faster and is one unit. The old version is two units/power supplies. Tod

    I have the dispenser/scale combo. I would be lost without it. It is a little slow(PACT will speed up the old ones to the speed of the new ones if you send it to them), but it is highly accurate. I have nothing negative to say about mine.

    Here is a good article that moved me to purchase the RCBS which is the fastest dispenser even though I wish it was faster!

    Isn't the Pact the one that weights to 0.01 grain. I think that would be worth something.

    Here's a quote from PACT:

    The Digital Precision Powder Scale is accurate to a tenth of a grain all the way to 1500 grains.

    That's 0.10 not 0.01

    Accurate to .1 grain? This is what RCBS also claims. I have found that to be an incorrect statement. After the powder charge is dropped, I lift the pan off of the scale, let it zero and then put it back on the scale. The charge is incorrect 95% of the time and is anywhere from -.3 to +.3.

    The way that I handle this (my problem) is that if I want a powder charge to weigh 67 grains, I set the weight to 65 grains. Once the charge is dropped, I lift it off of the scale, let it zero, and then re-weigh it and make the adjustments.
