I could see it changing as the scale expand but I haven't seen it personally. I use a frankford arsenal I found somewhere on sale. I know they're cheap but everytime I've checked it against my beam scale it's been dead on.
It makes weighing the charges for my magnums a heck of a lot faster.

Do keep the electronics away electronics and if the temp changes or you notice it drifting, re calibrate.

A scale should be turned on about an hour before using it to warm it up.

One thing that caused my scale to drift was static electrcity. I rub the scale down with dryer softener sheets before starting to load and keep a sheet or two under the scale while using it. It has stopped the drifting.
Try it, it works
