I am going to ask do we really need a scale that will weigh to 0.02 grains?  I might see it if you are loading 32 S&W or 32 ACP but is it really needed for our normal 38 Special, 9mm or 45 ACP loads? I can maybe see it also if you are loading for extreme long range rifle shooting.  But then there is the arguement that many bench rest shooters load by volume and not weight.  Asa I not picking on you this just caught my attention as this was just brought up on a reloading forum I am also on.

Not even then.   I shot in 1,000 yard F Class Competition for 6 years, and we worried about things other than a tenth or two of a grain of powder.

Others may deride this little scale as a cheap joke, but I use it to check my Lyman Beam Scale (which is already said to be more than accurate enough for pistol loads). It turns on almost instantly and seems to be more than good enough. IMHO.

It also works great for sorting 32 cast bullets by weight - but I stopped doing that, as many others have said, better to spend time training rather than wasting time searching for the "ultimate" reload.

You guys just verified what I was trying to impart on some tacticool internet warriors.  I am also of the opinion that +/- 0.1 is close enough for almost all applications in shooting.

My impression is that Veritas scales have a decent reputation and are a great deal for the money, but I have no direct experience with them. They were near the top of my list when I was looking for a more accurate scale last year when the A&D FX120i went on sale for <$500.
