Best Scales?

Post by CMR » March 7th, 2018, 9:13 am

I'm wanting to upgrade my scale. I'm currently reloading with a Hornady G2 1500 scale. It works, but I'm not crazy about it.

What are some other options that you've been happy with?

I get by with a Lee Safety for powder and BP Ballisticale for shot. Depending on the size of the powder grains, I trickle with a RCBS trickler or plastic spoon wiped with a dryer sheet. If I ever run out of other things to spend money on, I want a tuned Ohaus with one of those automated photo switch tricklers.

If you have trouble seeing the indicator on a balance, you can zoom in with your phone or tablet camera. Some people use a USB camera instead of holding up the tablet every time.
