Mad - I don't do this to every round I load up...it would take tooooo long to do...so I will choose one of two calibers a year to do this to, just checking, but load up hundreds of rounds per year...I probably shoot 500 round to one shot at one deer...LOL.....What I do it to weight the finish product once I get them all assembled the scale is right there so I will take 3 or the 10 or so rounds that I loaded up and write it down on the sheet somewhere. I don't keep it as a part of my records

Yari - Yes the last of the 10 shots that I loaded up for the Cooper Varmint 308 did end with a nice buck....here is another pix of it....

This happen in 2011 not 2012...sorry for the mix up......

The problem with scales is that they weight differently with each power supply....know that the RCBS scales are a little big heavier (by half a grain) when using the 120 VAC than the 9V battery, same goes with the big new scales I got in....the Pocket size has only 2 AA batteries that runs it....but notice this many years ago before I got the Acculab Scales and have always use the 120 VAC plug in on it and it does have a 9V DC slot but have always preferred the 120 VAC over the 9V DC.....

Also have been getting in two sets of weights in for the new and old reloading scales, so think I am covered....LOL....

Meet a guy last week at the range, that still uses the old Balance Beam RCBS scales for his reloading! Wow, I have two sets of them in a box just in case my other 4 digital scales go sideways...or I lose electricity and trying to reload with any juice!!!
