Hey guess I was wondering if any one here had tried one of those cheap jewelry scales they usually run about 20 bucks I was wondering how they would work for reloading?

bought the el cheapo from Harbor Freight a while back. Only measures in 2 grn increments. Not bad for getting the feel for the weight of bullets but no good for measuring powder. Doesn't hold tare well either.

I bought one of the Frankfort Arsenal pocket scales on sale a while back and it has been real good. It's accurate and quick to zero. It's a nice scale for the price, the only complaint I have is its battery powered only. If the batteries get low it does jump around a little. I have also noticed if you set something on the scale at different locations (like a bullet or charged case) it can change the reading on the lcd. Anymore I just use the pan and it seems to work much better.

+1 on the Frankford Arsenal scales. I have one and it is good for the price. Good for checking bullet weights and comparing to the beam scale.
