Weighing powder charges when handloading ammunition is something that requires a certain level of accuracy and consistency. I routinely read tales of woe regarding digital scales among the threads in the reloading sections on various websites. Some people have positive experiences with certain brands while others experience little or no success with any brand. While some brands and models of scales are simply of low quality, many users still claim problems with scales of excellent pedigree. Fact is that you can have the best equipment in the world and it won't function correctly if you do not know how to use it. Some users have demons that haunt their powder setups, and can seemingly never break free. I've been handloading for over 20 years and during that time I have used over a dozen different types of balance beam scales and probably 20+ electronic scales. Today I'm going to give you some guidelines to help you exorcise those demons and keep them at bay for good!
