when we are loading ammo and pour 700-900 powder charges per day, +/- .10gr, it is easy for the persons eyes to fixate on only the decimal point on the digital scale, and then trickle up to the correct decimal measurement ,,,,,
but if the big powder dispenser suddenly drops a charge that is a full grain above or below what you have it set for, and then the person running the trickler only looks at the digits to the right of the decimal point, you end up a full grain of powder under or over what the spec is ,,,,,,,
when using the good o'l balance beam scale, it is either in the middle with the correct charge or it is not ,,,, no room for error to creep in ,,,,,,
That's true. I tend to take my time loading mine (no rush), and being OCD I tend to double and triple check, and remove .1-.4 grains to equal oit my loads to a perfect 0.0. It's an enjoyablr hobby for me, but I can also completely understand where you're coming from.
