Lyman1500xp

The scale is only about a year old. Since it was new i have had this problem. Every time I weigh a charge and dump it and put the pan back on th scale it says -4 tenth. I have been weighing each charge 3 or 4 times. I weigh the charge to what I want, dump it back on the spoon, put the pan back on the scale, zero it again. Then dump the same charge back on the pan. I will repeat and adjust until the scale can duplicate the same numbers.

This is a PITA. What your take on this. Did I just get a back scale or are Lyman's junk

Re: Lyman1500xp

mine will do the exact same thing once out of about every 20 rounds. getting real tired of it also. I think its time for me to start looking for a different scale.

Re: Lyman1500xp

I have used the rcbs charge master and the hornady auto charge and I find them both to be slow and noisy. So, after thanking my buddys who own these machines I am happy with my method. Size, clean, trim, then prime then useing my perfect powder measure charge the cases place them in a loading block then before I seat the bullets dump each load on my 505 scale and if need be use my trickler to adjust the charge. I find this to work for me just fine and all of my charges are spot on
