    Have had a PACT for about 10yrs or more, with the powder dispenser. It broke down on me this week. Error message-but they have a lifetime warranty,so im sending it back for repair. A little slow but it worked fine for years. Perry

    Just bought one on ebay and it works excellent and paid $15 plus shipping! Several of my buddies have the same scale and they have had 0 problems.It's the unit that is listed more than 50 times. Quick ship and good packaging- weighs 500 grains w/ .2 grain accuracy.

    My scale needs are minimal. I only need to spot check powder (shotgun & rifle) & shot charges. I picked up an MTM (the plastic case people) for about $20. It's v compact, sets up in a jiff, and gets the job done fine.

    I use the RCBS Micro-Pro about $90.00 supposed to be same as a PACT at least that is what I have heard.

    Works very good and dependable, have had mine for 5 years now.

    I have a PACT.. works well, but, I find my old Ohaus and Redding beam scales are still more consistently accurate....

    I too bought a cheap one on E-Bay and haven't second guessed my purchase yet. It has a weight to check and recalibrate it and a nice hard plastic case. I think i paid less then $30.00 for it. It weighs in Grams,Ounces,Grains and Carats. It hasn't failed me yet.----Matt

    At the recent lead prices, weighing in carats sounds reasonable... lol
