Re: RCBS Charge Master Question

Another thing is I think the biggest deal is to put the powder pan back on the sacale and wait till it " zeros " again before dispensing a new charge. This is / has been working for me .

I like this gizmo , it still has a ways to go , nevertheless , I still like it .

If folks like us did not purchase it and use it the next generation would be much longer in coming .

When the next gen comes out is there any among you that can not afford a new one that would want to purchase a very well maintained used model ? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Jimm, funny you should mention that, I've been on Ebay looking at the electronic scales. If you're serious, let me know how much you want for yours.

Re: RCBS Charge Master Question

I the truth be known its my OCD thing that keeps me calibrating.

With the pan (mine's metal) and it reads -350.7 and with the pan on it reads0, I don't calibrate.

When I do calibrate I repeat until I get 350.7 w/o the pan.

The only other number its ever displayed is -350.8.

There are ways to program this thing for different things but I haven't messed with them. Mine is pretty much spot on all the time.

I would like to see another decimal point displayed. Messing with these ball powders I'm confident its sensitive enough.

I push <disp> when the "stable" indicator lights up which isn't until the scale reads zero. If the stable indicator is not lighted and I push <disp> it swaks and swears at me.

I've been loading 101 grains behind a 300gr SMK and don't even mind the wait.

I allow for no warm up time. I've been loading and shooting all day and there has been no drift. I'll leave 'er on all night and see what tomorrow brings.
