    I have these as do a few other people I know.
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Digital-High-...ent_ET&hash=item335d66d475#ht_1944wt_1141They are very consistent and accurate. I only paid £20 for mine though mind so I would wait to see if any shooters have a batch. What ever you get make sure they are accurate to 0.001g that way you will get grain readings as 8.44gn etc and you can see it is accurate and repeats correctly with the same pellet. Also gives you the option to weigh in .5 or 1.5gn brackets if you want.:)

    Pellets weighing

    I reckon it can be quite hard (expensive and time consuming) to weight accurately to 0.001g. I weighed pellets on a calibrated analytical balance and it took quite some time (glass surround to enclose the sample and waiting for the reading to settle; balance was also very expensive)

    Any one tested these the suggested devices against a calibrated balance? I know that the MTM balances often suggested for pellet weighing don't even have the capablility to resolve to 0.1gn.

    Any views?

    Mine give consistent readings this can be checked against previously weighed pellets. I want groups of pellets within 0.1 of a grain sometimes only .2 of a grain. Not really bothered what they actually weigh so have never cross checked my unit. Certainly seems accurate and quicky produces readings to a 100th of a grain. Will repeat to 100th up or down to this every time if i'm checking the weight. unless the batteries are getting low.:)

    Thanks for the response. I've been looking for something that is repeatable without beiing widely out on accuracy.

    Cheers.

    AWS DIA-10 is a very effective one for me. It is the best choice for FT shooters. I think She must visit Amazon as there she can find a scale having such little cost other wise it is very difficult to find elsewhere.

    Another vote for Gem pro 250. A tad expensive but very, very consistant.
