I have Catapoolted myself into the 21 st Century,,, Maybe.
I handloaded with rather primitive tools, and in a small way, for many years. It wasnít until the last 10 years or so, that I started to acquire more boomsticks, and handload more, and with more up to date tools.
I learned a lotta new things, and had to deal with heresay methods that turned out to be plumb rong.
Iíve become cautious, and even suspicious about new tools etc, and was reluctant to try new things. Some I tried, were not satisfactory.
I clung to my old Redding Powder Scale, that I purchased back in the early 60s. I was used to it, I was fast with it, and I trusted it. It is very sensitive, and very accurate. Why would I need anything else?
Howsomever, I recently bought a Small Electronic Powder Scale, on Sale, from Midwayusa. I thought that for the price, it would be worth it, just to see what were the downsides of Electronic Powder Scales.
I havenít found any. That little doo-dadger, has worked FINE and DANDY, so far. I like it. It saves me a lotta time.
Iím surely not a thoroughly modern, learned, precision, handloader as yet, but I feel Iím gittin closer.
(Well, back to my usual mode.) I hope the blame thing keeps workin as well as I think it is, now.
How many, you guys use Electronic Powder Scales? Which do you prefer? Do you use Both?
If you donít mind.
