    Hey all. I just snagged one of these (brand new) fairly cheap and was wondering if anyone had experiences with it that they would like to share. Good or bad....let's hear it. Thanks!

    I like mine just fine, worth every penny of the full asking price I paid for it.
    Mine registers down to a kernel of extruded powder (H1000, RL26, etc.) or about .05 grains.

    I still have an old original model 1 (not dampened) that I started reloading with when I was a kid. It has been relegated to the pistol reloading bench now.
    I also have some electronic scales.

    Pretty important to set it up properly. Put it where you can get parallax free view,( 0 at eye level), no air drafts, level it, (I also anchor mine by running screws around it into wood mounting to keep it from shifting positions if it gets tapped or bumped) and then weight check it. After that, gravity does the rest.

    I don't think you'll be disappointed with it.
