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.

    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.
