I'm looking for a good digital scale. I've looked through google and Ebay and found the options are endless. So what are you guys using that you have found to be reliable and accurate?

+2 on the Dillon D-Terminator, Love this scale, get the little plastic box/cover that it fits in as well to keep them clean and safe from something falling on them and messing them up.

Their fast and accurate to the .1 gr every time and doesn't need calibrated every day like other expensive scales, I calibrate mine like once a month just for the hell of it. I also have a Lyman scale check weight set that has a bunch of little weights in grains and small aluminum pieces that are a known weight in Gr's to check and see if the scales are reading correctly, they are much more useful than the single 50 gram check weight that comes with the scales since you can check just .5 gr if you want to see if your scales are reading right down low and on the grain mode as well as the gram mode that the heavier gram weight checks. Everyone needs a scale check weight set, it's a must have if you want to know your scale is accurate and reading correct all the time.

I have the Lyman 1000 XP, I wouln't recommend it. I paid about $90 for it and I'm just not thrilled with it. I have to recalibrate it all the time, the weight wonders around, I'm just never really sure if my weights are accurate or not.

I have asked about other Digital scales and been told they are ALL extremely sensative and wonder around. I have yet to try another brand so I can't say if that is true or not.

My RCBS Range Master 750 has been perfect thus far.

Are you looking for a scale to verify thrown charges or to trickle?
I have a Hornady GS-1500 scale that is cheap (<$40) and very accurate for verifying charges. The drawback is that it’s slow to register a change in the weight of a charge and therefore doesn’t work well for trickling. By the time it registers your target weight, you’ve already trickled .5 over. <o:p></o:p>

My Dillon De-Terminator is 8 yrs old and has been used thousands of times. Still works great. And, +1 on the suggestion to get the black cover for it.

+1. The scale + electronic dispenser work great as a combo as well.
