    I just got a new RCBS 1500 chargemaster kit from Cabela's last week. I have had no experience with any of the older versions of electric scales but I have heard some nothing good about them. I am really impressed with my new one that I got. I check the first 40 rounds agains a set of 5-0-5's and they were dead nut on 38 loads and within .1 on the other 2. Cleaning out the powder when you are done is not the easiest but not bad. I don't like picking the unit up and draining the powder out the side. Overall I really like the electronic version a lot better than the old weigh each load by hand and have Reloader 22 hang up in the throat of a 25-06 case every time.

    HAve had mine for awhile now and love it. Very accurate and fast as well. A trick I do is keep 2 powder pans handy that have the same weight to them. Makes the process even faster.

    Drain is a pain but not that bad to deal with
