The older Ohaus scales had the over/under graduations also... Kinda funny though as you want to be on zero anyway....

Re: Powder Scale

I have a Chargemaster and a Redding #2 Master beam scale that is so old that it is the old brown color. After five years with no problems with the Chargemaster I would get rid of the Chargemaster before the Redding.

In reloading the Chargemaster, or any digital scale for that matter, is more of a nice option. A good beam scale is a necessity.

The 502, 505, 10-10 and #2 are all good examples of proven beam scales.

I have a chargemaster and a rcbs beam scale. I use the chargemaster and double check a few with the beam scale. Has always been spot on for me.

Re: Powder Scale

I got lucky and found an ACCU-LAB VIC digital for $35 on EBAY. It was missing the check weights that usually come with it but I already had a set.

It works great.

Re: Powder Scale

A Redding #2 has been my 1st choice for quite a while. I also have a RCBS 505 that works just fine. It just doesn't get used all that often. The difference is just personal choice.

Where is the difference between having our arms in possession and under our direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands?” ~ Patrick Henry

Re: Powder Scale

I will agree with "varmintH8R" because I have also digital scale for my small business, it's doing work very well according to my experience. I am using it since 2007 or 2008 it still does work very well. So I would like to ask with you why you think like this..........
