    Gentlemen:

    I'm looking for information about an RCBS 09070 balance beam scale.
    Here's what I already know...

    - It was made by Ohaus like many of the RCBS scales.

    - Max capacity is 500 grains.

    - It has a sliding weight for 10.0 grain increments.

    - It has a micrometer poise (similar to that on an RCBS model 10-10) for the 0.1 grain to 10 grain adjustment.

    - It is magnetically dampened.

    - The materials, graphics, etc. suggest it can't be very old but it doesn't appear to be in the current RCBS product line.

    Does anyone know how long these have been around, what they listed for, when they were discontinued and why?
    For anybody that uses this model, please comment on ease of use, accuracy, etc. I'm interested in the good, the bad, and the ugly.

    Thanks in advance,

    sissy

    I think you are looking for the RCBS 305. Mike.

    Google RCBS 09070. Looks like it is/was the mfg. part# for the RCBS 5-10(like the 10-10 but 500gr vs 1000gr capacity)

    Completed ebay sales in the last 14 days show prices ranged from $40-$80.

    PS: I tried yahoo and several other search engines without success. Google wasn't among them.

    As I'm sure you know, google recently began a process of EXPANDED snooping. I've chosen to NOT cooperate with google's enhanced invasion of my privacy.
