    That .01 gram is .1 grain Again, 10X less sensitive than the better one in my video. You gotta watch that. The better ones are out there, and under $25. The will say .001 G.
    I see the exact one I have is available on eBay now for $14.99 delivered. It looks like a "Gemini" but is a no name unit.

    I have read your previous post and have taken what you have said into consideration. Unfortunately I don’t do much on evilbay And I shy away from no name electronic. Every time I’ve purchased one ( off any type) they have been way more trouble than they are worth. Just me. But that’s the way I am.

    I use the BallistiScale 1500 from Ballistic Products for an electronic scale.It works well and is currently on sale for $24.88 on the BP website.I also use the Redding No 2 and Lyman Ohaus M5 balance beam scales.

    I think that all the reloading OEM electronic scales are pretty much the same. I’ve had Hornady’s original battery powered G-1500 scale and their electronic bench scale for years and both line up with any of my beam scales. The battery powered one is a bit irritating as it shuts off and the bench scale stays plugged in and on all the time.
    I don’t know what kind of reloading you do but they work fine for what I do as I’m not trying to get to .0001 of a grain of powder like some do.

    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 but that's no where near as accurate as having a +/- .02 grains "fudge factor". some very very accurate powder charges can be made with a .02 grain (.001 gram) scale.
