    Redding to the rescue!

    When your Lyman electronic scale acts wonky.
    When your RCBS 505 acts finicky.
    And your Lyman plastic scale freezes.

    You dig out your old Redding scale with hydraulic dampening!
    This thing always works like a champ!
    Dead on for what it is!

    I keep mine handy, just to verify my digital scales...

    It’s a simple fact ( in my book really!) that anything electronic can and often will fail usually at the worst possible moment. Weighing or even checking a powder charge is serious business never to be taken lightly. I have never used or had the desire to own any kind of electric scale. It’s too serious of a business to take even the slightest chance.

    I've never got into the digital / electronic scales, or powder measures, for that matter [I just use my Reddings]. I use my RCBS [by Ohaus, the scale people] 5-10 scales. And jic, I have a second one at the cottage [so I don't have to lug all of my reloading equipment out there in the spring & back in the fall], but I bought a 3rd one, again just in case!
