Re: best digital scale for the $
To each his own. When any reloading grade of digital scale works properly it's as 'good' as any other. When one craps out they're all cheap Chinese 'throw-away' junk, not worth the cost of repairing. What any of us actually gets is luck of the draw, not brand or how much it costs. The people who luck-out think they're great, those with bad luck disagree. A LOT of people who have tried them have gone back to their mechanical scales.
I used to repair and calibrate precision electonic instruments in the space program. There are no digital powder scales on my bench nor will there be. I do have a cheap battery operated scale for weighing cases but if it's wrong, or quits, no one will die.
