Andy, If you have any rifle or pistol bullets lying around they are pretty close enough to weight to check your scale. Hope this helps George

Use something a little more precise like a rifle or pistol bullet. I use two, a 20gr and a 50gr just to be sure. And yes I have a digital scale but it never hurts to check things often.

Dimes work ok but they do vary a bit but not enough to matter. I have used them for years but I also have the factroy weights ( Ohaus) I just never bother with them

What Ks5shooter said....if you want accuracy. In the ball park...use a dime, thats about how much your results will be worth.

Sorry to offend. I guess I am one of those guys that doesnt like "close enough".

p.s. I did weigh 10 new looking dimes. Lightest=34.2 grains, heaviest 35.6 grains. Reweighed lightest and heaviest 3 times with same readings. The majority were within .2 grains.
