Competition Pocket Scales
My current scale that has served me so well in past has went on the blink and I am looking for a worthy replacement.
Does anyone know of a reliable go to scale that they would recomend for competition?
I like the Dillion scales. I use them for Competion and general reloading. Plus the price is right
the dillon is less than your beam scale..it is plus or minus 0.1 in .1 steps..the beam will indicate when even a slight off from middle
do a search on "scale" or "scales"
and run thru those threads there was a small compact for about 150 or so that "seemed" to be a good product....

Ditto on the Dillon scale. 4 AA batteries last a year or you can plug in the adapter.
Every load goes over my Dillon. Cut a piece of heavy paper to place over the hole in the breeze shield and the unit settles at once.
Suggest you try TANITA 1210 N or new model 1230 N, at Miniscales price US $204,00 IMHO by far the best miniscale for our purpose. Carlos
Because they are accurate.
Because they are made in USA. Grand Prairie Texas is still in USA, right?
Because I believe they make the Dillon.
Because if you choose to go with a dispenser at a later date the PACT dispenser will work in conjunction with their scale.
I have something to send you but do not have your e mail.
i hope things at pact are better now than when i owned one of thier chronographs....
it spent more time in shipping and in thier plant than with me in the time i owned it. not a joke..a fact.
sold it , went to an oehler and never looked back

Had to send a PM, Joe as the e-mail address in your profile wouldn't go through.
Can you believe this Mike bashing a company and his post hasn't been deleted?
Quite often, some of the inexpensive scales on Ebay will be very good for not much money. It requires a known good scale to compare them to however. For instance, I bought one of those Postal Scales to weigh my guns, etc on here at home. As it turns out, it is always Dead Nuts when weighing certified test weights.
In my opinion, a Pocket Scale should be inexpensive enough so that when it crumps it won't be painful to throw away and inexpensive enough to, perhaps, withstand the purchase of two or three to get a reliable one.
