    A budget guidline would be helpful or youre going to get answers ranging from cheapie $60 units (dont) through to $1800 for a GD503 through to $10kUSD + for a Prometheus.

    10k US sounds sensible. $60 bucks is fine if +- .1 grain is all you need.

    Do you honestly think a $60 electronic scale is going to give you a consistent +/- .1 grain reading??

    All I was doing by asking about budget is to refine the options.

    Most of the electronic scales drift terribly unless you pay a big wad of dosh. What scales are you using at the moment? Are you using a powder thrower?
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!
