Re: Reloading scale

Seeing that other folks operate on the 'old school' train of thought like I do, makes me feel good. Always been a beam scale person. I just can't trust an electronic scale. Beam scales are inherently accurate and inherently simple, especially the 3 poise type.

So long as the fulcrum is clean, there is no chance of inaccuracy or repetitve error.

If it's good enough to weigh narcotics, it's good enough.......

    Like I said, dope dealers don't use electronic scales, never have and dope is a bit more expensive per 'granule' than powder is.

    Check,,,check...and re-check the weight on a balance beam against a GOOD QUALITY electronic scale. You'll see they end up the same...and with the speed of an electronic thats just the way I have to go.
