  1. I am seriously considering one of these, and I’m glad to see that RCBS has come out with a (relatively) inexpensiver model. Particularly when loading cylindrical shaped grains of 4350 or 4064, each charge from my powder dispenser needs to be weighed and trickle-adjusted. The owner of the reloading facility at my local gun club clued me in to the advantages of these automatic powder measures during my last visit.

  2. Personally I’ll stick with my Lyman Ohaus M-5 beam balance scale. It may be slower, but I trust to be more accurate & consistent. I bought it along with my Ohaus DU-O-Measure in 1972 & they still work perfect. Plus or minus .05 grains is easily obtainable for me. I wouldn’t us an electronic digital scale if it was given to me.
