Ohaus vs. RCBS

Loading the other night I was shocked to watch my digital scale drift .4 grains with only an empty powder cup on it. I borrowed an Ohaus 10.0.5 beam scale and was amazed. Scale was dead on with check weights and zeroed flawlessly. Now I want one. Can't find one, new that is. Is the RCBS 1010 the equivalent only with a caliper style tenth adjustment. Or better yet does anyone have an Ohaus that they would part with.

I did see that one and am considering bidding on it. I do like the micrometer type tenth adjustment on the RCBS 1010 but was wondering if the RCBS scale was as good. Although I do see that I will probably be able to pick this one up for much less.

I have been using an RCBS 10-10 for years, and every time I start to think about buying one of the electronic combo's I read another post like yours and stay with my 10-10.
BUT be careful, the older RCBS 10-10's were made by Ohaus, but the newer ones are not.
If you turn the scale over it should say Ohaus, Florham Park, NJ.

Re: Ohaus vs. RCBS

I went the router of Ebay and bought an original Ohaus. I have never felt the need to purchase anything else.

If I did, there is a fella on Accurate Shooter forum that sells the older ones all super tuned up that all the guys on that forum that use them swear by......
