I would consider either electronic or balance beam. I have read that electronic scales don't last and can be finicky, this has me leaning toward a good balance beam. What I have now is an 80's model Lyman 500 and it seemed to do the job for years. I started getting some flyers where I hadn't had them before and after checking everything else twice I gave my scale a good look and discovered it has repeatability problems. So out it goes. Thanks.
