I think mine was handed down by Elihu Lyman!

I've got a Dillon eliminator and an d'terminator. Ive used the electric a bit. It is fast but a balance beam is old school and nats ass. I haven't used the electronic scale I paid a bunch for in 3 months. Hahaha. Love a balance beam

I have this one
http://www.midwayusa.com/product/175512/frankford-arsenal-ds-750-electronic-powder-scale-750-grain-capacity

After going the "really cheap" route I tried this one. No disc batteries, uses AAA's. Mine has not eaten a set of batteries in over a year. Pleased.

Dustinof, I was looking at the Dillon Beam scale eliminator. Dillion does not say what it is made of. Is this platform plastic or cast metal base? I note it is made by Ohaus Scales which is good?

It's cast. Little plastic leveling base. I've studied an rcbs and its identical to what I can tell. Just different paint? Lol. I'm just loyal to my dillon stuff. Figure if something happens ill complain that I've got a lot of money in stuff with there name on it! Lol

It's a solid scale. Picked mine up off of eBay for 45 bucks. Smokin deal. Took me awhile to find it. Most things on there are pretty much cost. After having it I would pay 70 if I was to get another one.

I agree Dillion is a great outfit. I have an old Dillion 450 I bought around 1980. Dillion has up dated a number of times.

I bought my 450 about the same time. Used it for several years then upgraded to a 650. Used that for close to 20 years.

I finally got too old to shoot that much, so I gave the 650 to my son and went back to the 450.

Dillon is unbelievable!!! I wish everyone conducted business the way Dillon does.
