    wich electronic scale you use

    I would like to know wich electronic scale can be the best for precision long range target shooting. I need precision to do my munition for a long range like 0.7 to 1 miles.

    I was thinking to buy a Gempro 500 is that a good one?

    RCBS Chargemater. Plenty accurate enough for me and my rifles.

    How much are you willing to spend on a scale?

    In the price range of the gempro there is not a real accurate scale.

    The chargemaster works for loads if you have a very wide node. The chargemaster is not nearly as accurate as it would have you to believe.

    This is what I use purely for ease of use. Reasonably accurate as well.

    Chargemaster here also. While I realize it's not as accurate as some scales, the convenience and speed of it make up for the loss of accuracy in my powder charges.

    And although the accuracy of the SCALE is not as good, it hasn't affected the accuracy of my reloads. I have even thought about buying another one to use in tandem for long reloading sessions.

    Chargemaster here as well. I think it is a good combo of speed and accuracy. If you need accuracy down to a single grain of powder the chargemaster will not do that.

    The chargemaster is accurate within about +or- 0.25 gr of powder even when the scale read the same. That is a half grain extreme spread. Now...if you are in the middle of a node where 1/2 grain won't make a difference then that is fine...but most shooters are not. That 1/2 grain translates into far spreading numbers on the chronograph and for me...stringing bullets on the target. I was amazed at how much the chargemaster varied when I actually compared it on a good scale. For me...it did make a difference on paper. I went back to trickling powder on a satorius scale and my groups tightened.

    And how much exactly does a scale like that cost?
