Re: Electronic vs Balance Beam scales
Like the others here I have found no fault with my 1500. I used to check it with my old balance beam which was much more unreliable than the 1500. The digital stays plugged in and turned off and needs no warm up time. Just turn it on, calibrate it with the supplied weights and the pan will weigh exactly 155 grains everytime. Everytime I pick the pan up I glance at the display and it will read -155.0 grains everytime and that tells me I am right on track.
I always set to dispense a little less than I want and then dislodge a few granules off the end of the tube to get the weight exact. Also the digital is much faster because I seat the bullet on a previously charged case while the dispenser is going and by the time I am through charging all the cases I am within 3 or 4 cases of having all the bullets seated also.
On the few times that I have had to pull bullets to change a load, I always weigh the powder charge and it has always been the exact same weight as it had previously weighed when loaded the first time. By watching all this I am confident that the 1500 is performing as it should.
I gave my old balance beam to a kid who is starting to reload.
