Re: Who is from Wisconsin!

Here's the place he is talking about.

Daniel Boone Conservation League

I don't think I will make it Yote. Sorry.

I just joined the Bristol club. They are currently working on a 200m rifle range. They have an outdoor pistol range, 5 trap houses and a skeet field. The people I met there while filling out paperwork were awesome. They have lots of raffles so I can waste what little money I have!

Yote, I found a guy on here that is sending me a press from GA. I just need to cover shipping! It's an older RCBS. There was another guy who thought he had a scale for me but he couldn't find it. What do you guys think of something like this?

Hornady*Electronic Scale 1500 GS*050107

Cheddar - at that price you can't go wrong. I would check this and other sites for info on that scale. My understanding is that one needs to consider how use (meaning - as unit warms up with use) effect accuracy and consistency. Also how often it has to be calibrated seems to be an important consideration.

Re: Who is from Wisconsin!

Are elcetric scales finicky like the balance beams for level?

Can you elaborate on this? I don't understand what you are talking about? Sorry.

Ok. I figured out your meaning. As the electric scales gets warmer, it may change consistency, right? I would not have thought of that.

Cheddar - Yup... that what I was trying to convey. Also how well does it hold zero? Lastly, check out the Frankford Arsenal on sale at Midway ($19.00). It's accurate to 1/10th grain, GS-1500 is 2/10ths, and it gets good reviews.
