    OK, I know there will be some that will respond that there is no good digital scale. Well I want one anyway.

    Any recommendations?

    I use a Cabelas XT-1500. Economical and accurate

    I just bought a Cabela's model 1500 and it works great.
    I had one of those small $30 scales with the smal watch batteries, it worked great but it will cost you a small fortune in batteries. $4.50 for the 2 batteries. That is why I wanted the Cabelas model, runs of of 9 volt battery and 110v.

    I just got back from Cabela's and went to pick up a PACT but they didn't have any so I picked up a Cabela's 1500. I'll give it a try and see how it works.

    Thanks all,

    Well I just got done reloading 200 1 oz, 18.4 grain shells for my Jr. High shooter. At every 20 shells I measure both the shot and powder with the new Cabela's 1500 and my Lee beam scale. They both pretty much matched each other all 10 times.

    Tomorrow I load 200 1 1/8 oz for my High School shooter. We'll see how that goes as far as the scale.

    Think outside the pathetic junk aimed at shooters and look to the labs. This is the scale I use:<center>
    [​IMG]
    </center>

    It's made by Tree and measures to 100 grams with .001 g (1 milligram) accuracy (that's 0.0154 grains). I bought it for $50 from a dentist who was expanding his practice and replacing equipment but a NEW one can be had for under $250 (see link). Runs off AC or batteries and is dead on every time.

    200 rounds today using the $75 Cablela's 1500 and my Lee beam scale as a reference. Both were pretty much dead on within a 100th or so.
    Let's face it any closer than that for a shot shell is a getting a little anal.

    We'll see how the 1500 holds up in the future.
