Re: What\'s the best electronic scale?

All,
FYI: I've recnetly tested (and bought) one of the Ohaus Navigator scales that have a .05 grain resolution (492.00, 492.05, 493.00) with many other options on it for grams, grains, rezeroing for comparison measuring, etc,etc,etc. The price is steeper (usually $400+ as mentioned in an earlier post) than the digit scales put out by the major manufacturers, but the resolution is much better and it's repeatable with my check weight (after warming up as was already mentioned) They are available from Clinch River Outfitters. They have another higher model than the Navigator that has a resolution that goes down to .02 gr but it was to pricy for me.
For comparison measuring of cases/bullets in a short amount of time this is unbeatable. But like anything you have to determine if the price warrants the real need for the speed and resolution it gives. For someone measuring powder to reload it's probably to much. For a competition shooter or someone who wieghs a large number of items to do statisical control with, it's a very large time saver.

    Steve,
    I have heard of these somewhere else also, they said it was the very best too, but very pricey as you too said. If I was in competition...

    Brent, I like the LE-1000. Yeah the Navigator is THE scale, but for my purposes the LE-1000 will do the job rather nicely(with substantial savings). Repeatability seems very good, and MUCH better than the small Pact BBK-II I borrowed from a pistol shooter friend of mine. The scale has provisions for a 9 volt or plug in. It also has a really handy built in holder for the 50 gram check weight. Nifty.

    Did your buddy live close to Oak Ridge in eastern TN? The deer and turkeys over there still glow in the dark from the radioactivity! [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

    MC, Oakridge is the place he was close to.

    Is the autoscale the same as the LE1000?

    Brent, that was a one heck of a lucky guess! [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] Oak Ridge, that is.
