    I'm starting reloading soon and i was wondering what kind of scales you use or what you would recommend. the price must be around $100 but it wouldn't be a big deal to go up in price a little.

    I like the Dillon Precision scale for around that price. Very high quality.

    I use a Gem pro-500 from My Weigh. It is a fantastic scale for the money.

    Actually, all the beam scales are pretty much equal, even the Lee. I have an RCBS 5-0-5 that I use to even check the electronic powder dispenser to see if it's lying.....:rolleyes:

    I'd start with a magnetically dampened beam scale because it will become your backup as you progress and is especially useful for precisely measuring handloads when working up loads.
