    If given a choice would you choose the rcbs digital 1500-2000 or the digital Dillon scale.... I am looking for a scale that's faster than my beam spot checking weights on my Dillon progressive , mainly for pistol... 1/10 is good but of course there's better... Any answers appreciated , I am not looking for a charge master , for rifle I use my beam and trickle up on a single stage press...

    Thanks as always....

    You don't need anything special to be within +/- .1 grn. Midway sells a digital scale for $35 that would do it.

    I find the Dillon satisfactory for pistol loads...

    Dillon is not bad for the money.
    Got my current one here.

    If you see a US. dealer that stocks the new gempro-300, would you let us know on this thread. Thanks.

    I liked the video on the GemPro300 even though the reviewer thought it was too slow. Heck of a nice digital screen and looked very accurate.

    Check out your warranty BEFORE purchase, especially on the RCBS. They WILL adhere to it, in my experience.

    Just for a heads up in case anyone else is interested in one of the GemPro 300 scales. Brownell’s is showing them on backorder now. With promo code NCS it will cost $145. I don’t have any idea when their expecting shipment.

    I have an fxi but I swear by my Dillon scale and that is all I use for small batches of rifle or on my 1050s pumping out volumes...I found that by leaving it on I get little or no drift. After calibrating it is good for the day...best under $900 electronic scale in my opinion. Beats my rcbs...
