Re: Trouble with a RCBS 505
I am not familiar with the RCBS 505, is it a beam scale? If so, you are right, everything should be on zero.
I know it is this way for the beam scales I have owned - put everything on 0 then adjust the screw or bolt (or what every you want to call it) on the end of the scale to move the beam up or down to where it shows the pointer at the center position. My hornady has a "scale" with a big 0 in the center of it with hash marks above and below.
