Well after all the testing, the results were confirmed with a Lyman check weight set. The overall most accurate is the Lee safety scale with a +-.05 tolerance. Second place goes to Big Blue Pacific oil dampened scale with an as advertised +-.10. The RCBS in last place being beat out by even the antique scales.

This is a public service announcement from your friends at Deadeye Engineering.

You'd think that with the price of the RCBS stuff it would be the best. :roll:

I'll put my RCBS 1500 electronic up against them all. I have done the 50 gr check testing many times and get the same results 50.0 everytime. Well worth the money especially if you are an anal beancounter like me.

Although I agree with the accuracy of the Lee, what I use is my RCBS 750....faster, and seems just as accurate.....

I only checked the scales I had on hand. The only electronic scale I tested was a U.S. balance piece of crap that I got at a flea market, it was the worst! I'm sure the RCBS electronic scales are very accurate, I just can't arrord one. Besides then I would have missed doing all this fun research! ;)

Hey Terry - do you just check the 50gr end of the scale or also the .5 through 10 grain weights? Most electronic scales may not be linear in their accuracy, so check both ends. Most times powder is thrown closer to the low end of the scale. Just a thought.

I only use the 50. When I do a calibration then it's at 0-50-100. I usually calibrate before I begin dropping powder.
