LD.. you are such a knowledgeable guy.. why be so condescending and myopic in your point of view?

I was one that I guess you are lumping into the 'naysayer' range.

I CAME hear and saw the results.

Keep in mind that not all of us were saying that it was going to be an INACURATE scale.

some of us mentioned that simply having an industry standard might be a better way to go vs liability.. whether or not the actual measurements were and more or less accurate.

so much knowledge.. so narrow a viewpoint???

free country i guess ( mostly ).. and everyone's entitled to say their piece... etc..

stev32k:

Well!! You proved the nay sayers wrong. Very good indeed.

When I saw the spec's you provided before, I though that the scale might actually be more accurate than any of the "Factory" scales. But all we really need is plus or minus a tenth of a grain. It is handy to know the scale is much more accurate than that.

One of my Dillon scale's faults is drift off the zero over time. Even if I let it warm up for a hour or so or use it all day, it drifts off zero. No real problem in that my technique is to re-zero it for every measurement. I don't check my powder measure's delivery with every case and not even every tenth case as recommended because I trust the Dillon scale from years of use. I might check the powder measure's delivery half way through a batch of 100 or so. I have never found the charge off by more than a tenth grain or so. Every so often I check the scale against my Lyman test weights and it is always within a tenth grain accurate. Have you seen this drift problem with the new scale?

The other failure is universal with all these digital scales: air drafts in the reloading area affecting the measurements. I use the "wind shield" when I can and place the scale away from any air drafts.

Too bad the nay sayers won't come here and see the results of your buy. How foolish is it to think that only reloading companies can supply something as simple as a digital scale.

Good luck with you new scale.

We may or may not have differing opinions. I'm an engineer as well.

you don't see people using farm tractors out building roads.. they generally use normally accepted heavy equipment.

can you build a road with a farm tractor? sure. :)

I see some avenues not as mistakes.. but just different paths.

You have too much info in your posts to NOT read them.. just stating that somtiems your brush gets pretty broad. I was int he discussion and thus guess I'm one of the naysayers you referred to.. yet the generalizations , some of which were made, do not apply to all.

i seem to remember another user contemplating using a non reloader-branded scale a while back. the justice was swift and constant with the only reprieve being as I recall.. go ahead and get it an see how bad it is.. or blow yerself up.. or something to that extent. it was pretty universal too.. i didn't see much if any quarter given in the thread. ;) guess times are changing now.. :)

just saying.

ditto your last line.

. If you indeed are an engineer and don't agree with that approach you need to review your old text books.

OK.. at this poit.. i'll just have to stop conversing with you aftr that direct insult.

I'll read your posts for the usefull info they contain, but will no longer be able to actually have a conversation with you.

I specifically stated i was an engineer in no uncertain terms.

The 'if' question afterwards is a tad insulting.

later.

I won't further reply to this thread topic.
