Re: Digital Scale and Accuracy
I'm going on the record against electronic scales for reloading. I wonder how many check their scales against their beam scale for accuracy? With a beam scale, you can see if moving, changing, breathing and it lets me know "it's working". I trust my big Ohaus 304. I don't need to worry about batteries and the effects that low voltage will do to an LED reading.
For quick work such as weighing brass or bullets into groups, electronics are fine. For telling me I've just added .1 or even .05 grains of powder, I trust that twitchin, teeter-totering beam. I do agree that when trickling, it's best to trickle, pick up the pan and reset it back on the electronic scale. With my beam, I lightly touch the beam to get it moving in the same direction every time. One of the keys to consistency which is one of the keys to accuracy is doing the same thing everytime.
Oh yeah! I also like to throw powders from my Harrel's measure when feasible. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
