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.
America is a land of plenty, plenty of food, plenty of money, plenty of gods, plenty of corrupt politicians and alas, plenty of useless idiots that repetitively vote for them.

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..........
waterproof scale
