Re: Has my scale gone whacko
I have been using a Lyman 1200 for years,,, and years. So I ecently purchased a RCBS chargemaster combo. I opened up the ne charge master and fired it up. I then would weigh a charge on one scale and dump it in the other scale to see if they were on the same page, To my surprise they were in complete compliance with each other, to the tenth of a grain. I also weighed a few bullets to see if they would agree, and they did, again to the tenth.
So I get ready to load some rounds with the new RCBS charge master. The 3 buttons of the left side of the key pad that are labeled 1, 4, 7 are incorrect. When you push 1 you get a 2 when you push 4 you get a 5 and for 7 you get 8. the same as the center row of digets, but the center row is correct. In playing with it I found that what ever it gives you on the screen is what you get for a charge. I called RCBS and after a 30 minute hold they said send it in and they will send out a new one the next day. They were very polite and I asked them to function test before they sent the new one. Soooo, back in the box it went and I get to pay shipping and ins. to send it back to RCBS.
Anyway, a bullet that is close to the needed charge is how I keep an eye on my scales. But I was happy to see they do agree.
