Been using a 5-0-5 RCBS for 50+ years, never had a single issue..everything from 6ppc to .338wm thumpers....why change !
Don’t know how this got on her because I didn’t write it I was looking at the forum and a friend called so evidently while talking to him I was pushing buttons I’m bad. DavidLoo ok look lol lol lookoooko ok I look ooo look ok ok I’ll look I’ll

I have the same family of US Solid scale, in the 300 gram unit.I was hoping you were ok, and not having a medical event....
Back on track here, I've been using this scale recently as a backup/ check for my pair of Hornady scales. Seems to be functional so far. -DBS46-2 model shows weight in grains, most of this brand do NOT.
The belding and mull speed things up considerably I’ve used one ever since seeing a friend of mine use his which has been quite a few years ago I’ve bought 3 of them just in case I’d need parts and glad I have them. DavidI have the same family of US Solid scale, in the 300 gram unit.
I used to have a Hornady LnL auto dispenser. It was more consistent than my RCBS (gen 1), but man, the mother was S-L-O-W for anything above 55gr.
Got pizzed enough to do something about it.
I chanced upon two Belding and Mull Powder drops at a favorite gun shop, bought them on the spot. Both needed the drop cylinder. I had some extra powder measures for my muzzle loader, they fit perfectly. Just had to pull off the cone.
I was using a lab spatula for final kernel drop but found it to be too cumbersome, so went out and picked up a RCBS hand trickler at another fav gun shop for $10. Easy Peasy now.
US Solid scale : $140.
Belding & Mull powder drop, $35.
Black Powder drop tube, $15.
RCBS powder trickler, $10.
So, I'm $200 all in, takes me less than 10 seconds to drop a charge (and that's not rushing), no matter the volume, and it's within 0.05gr of target.
Since setting up the above, I've only done one hundred 243 Win cases, and I am *really* liking it.
The current PITA is that it's ergonomics suck. Too much motion because the B&M is mounted to the side of the scale.
I think I have the parts to build an assembly that keep it self contained.
The M5 stays in the drawer. Didn't realize I had sold my 10-10.
Today a friend offered me his spare, BNIB Fx120i. I'd like to set the two up side by side to look at responsiveness and accuracy.
