RCBS Charge Master Question

For those using one,:
Do you or do you not calibrate every time you fire it up?

Just been thinkin', maybe a little too much [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Re: RCBS Charge Master Question

Every time you turn it on you recalibrate (yes).

Re: RCBS Charge Master Question

I always calibrate. Just wondered if it was necessary.

Roy , Roy , Roy ,

[img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] I just love saying that , must be the "Quigley" influence.

Anyway , what have you done regarding the " calibrating " every time ?? I have played around a bit as I am sure you have as well , so ...............show me yours and I will show you mine [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

Weigh a charge after calibrating , set it aside , calibrate , weigh the charge again , hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Weigh a charge after calibrating , set it aside ( needs to be covered from excessive humidity ) wait til day two , weigh it , then calibrate , then weigh it , ad infinitum ......

One tenth of a grain is all I can get variance whether I calibrate or not .


Anyone else doing / getting this ?

Re: RCBS Charge Master Question

I don't recalibrate, but I do let it "warm up" for about 30 min. before I use it. The weight of the plastic powder pan is known so if doesn't show this weight when warm and "zero" when placed on the scale, I'll do something then.
