OP has already ordered a Gempro 250. It is accurate to within .02 and cost $65 less.

ive got a pact scale dispensor combo and a lyman scale/dispensor and both work well. I probably like using the pact a bit better but the lyman is a bit faster. Both scales have been a 100 percent reilable.

Re: what scale should i buy

I used an Ohaus 10-10 for many years. It needed lots of attention to the blades and anvil. I bought a $40 Frankfort Arsenal electronic and it never would settle down. I had a Lyman Accuscale that was replaced by Lyman following the troubles I had with it. I gave it to someone I didn't like. I am currently pleased with the Sartorius Acculab. It reads to .02 grains or .001 grams. Sinclair has it Powder Scales | Powder Handling at Sinclair Inc
I have bought a used scientific scale that also is reliable and repeatable to .0001 gram. I use it to sort primers and bullets.

Buy the most expensive scale you can and you will spend less on scales. Plus you will load better ammunition. Spend more on your scale than on your press.

I've used the same RCBS 5-05 for forty years and that includes lots of 6PPC benchrest shooting and have never had a single problem and at the time that scales was about $40 .. I believe they still make it and would recommend it to anyone for rifle shooting.

I've been using the Hornady Auto Charge Dispenser for a few months now and I am very happy with it.I've reweighed the charges and every time they were right on the money.Working much better than the RCBS 750 scale that I had been using.I watched some reviews on YouTube and that sold me on the unit.
