I thought the RCBS Chargemaster 1500(e-scale and powder measure combo) was great until the thing died after the warranty expired. RCBS wants to replace the junker with another one for 200 bucks. I read a lot of reviews and the RCBS also has it's share of problems with powder melting the plastic if not cleaned daily along with the above pre-mature death. The other major brands have all sorts of poor reliability/failure issues as well.
Give me some thoughts on the options:
1) Going back to a manual powder measure, such as a Redding that has great reviews for accuracy and proven reliability or... I used one for more than 20 years and it never, ever, wimpered.
2) Sucking it up with the same replacement RCBS junk and expect it to die in a year, and tell myself it was money well spent by this dumbarse!
I admit to be old enough to expect certain well cared for things to last unless I purposely abuse them and electronics are hard to love sometimes for this reason.
