Which make and model of pellet scales are the majority of shooters using.
Thanks in advance.
I don’t bother for my FT work. Prefer to work with a good batch of pellets that don’t require weighing.
I’m happy with a good batch straight from the tin JSB 8.4grn Exacts
Spencer, you are welcome to borrow my scales. Weigh a few tins of pellets and see if you notice any difference.
If I could that would be great. I've got a cheap set of diamond scales but they don't seem to be any good. If you weigh the same pellet over and over it's a different weight every time.
I'd like to try weighing the pellets as I know what a difference the weight of pellet makes to the velocity and poi.
I can then rule out the odd stray shot as human error.
look up ct250
I've found that some scales require the item being weighed to be placed in exactly the same spot on the scale, otherwise they give varying results (got over that with mine by putting a spot with a permanent marker to place the pellet on) - mine's an old set from Maplins, not brilliant, but good enough for my purposes.
I bought Kern TAB 20,
About the cheapest repeatable quality scale. Extremely accurate at batching pellets into 10 different weights, quite tricky to use consistently though. Don’t breathe on them!
Spencer, I will bring my scales to the club tomorrow. Give them a try and see how you get on.
Gempro 250 by Myweigh not Cheap but very repeatable.
