    Powder scales and thrower

    Anybody got either of these they're looking at selling? Cheaper the better. Good chance for someone to upgrade their Lee anniversary kit scales and thrower @Ryan_Songhurst.

    Only looking at reloading 50 to 75 rounds a year so don't need anything fancy.

    Some great deals on ebay for digital scales

    Some of the hornady ones were $15 a month ago

    I bet a lot of people starting to reload think that they will only end up reloading 50-75 rounds a year!

    Any in particular I should look at / or avoid? I was thinking of going with balance scales as I thought cheap balance scales would be more reliable than cheap electronic scales.

    Sam I gave away my Lee scales a while back as have RCBS stuff now. You're welcome to borrow it though, if you're only loading a few you don't really need a thrower anyhow just use a scoop and dribble each load onto the scale.
