    rfd replied to a thread New scale needed in Reloading Equipment
    well ... if yer working up a load for a small cartridge (case) then yes, having a scale that will work well (fast, accurate, cheap) do kinda make sense. no one needs .0001 or .001 grain (not grams) consistent accuracy. 1/10th grain would be nice...
