Tim, I've got two digital scales specifically made for the loading duties. My favorite is the Dillon that has a number of years on it but still my choice. The other is a Pact that is well known and respected by the shooting fraternity on this forum. The Pact hasn't had but 1 or 2 hours of use but does date back a couple of years which shouldn't make a whit of difference. The Pact was somewhere in the $130 range when purchased and I'd gladly send it to you for $80, shipping on me. If this isn't what you're looking for, please let me know promptly

I'll gladly sell it to the first to come up with the check if Tim turns it down.....breakemall.....Bob Dodd

Tim, I recently helped a friend get started in reloading. He bought a scale like the one you mention in your thread, please don't buy it. Buy the one Bob Dodd is offering. I also have a PACT and recently upgraded to the Lyman DPS III system. The quality (and I suspect accuracy) of the cheapy scales is marginal at best. Reloading is a great hobby, but to be done safely requires that you use quality equipment. While there are areas you can cut costs, I am not sure that the device you are going to rely on to ensure your powder charges are correct is one.

Just my unsolicited two cents.

Definitely--don't scimp on quality of digital scales. I've gone through numerous mediocre digital scales and the beam scale I still rely on for absolute measuring.

Tim's agreed to send the moola so unless there's a dilemma, my Pact is sold. If this deal fails for some reason, Jerry, I'll let you know first and get it on the threads if necessary.....breakemall....Bob Dodd
