With my RCBS electronic scale it has a clear plastic cover that closes over it for weighing. It is a must for constant accuracy. I have it plugged into a dedicated 20 amp circut. I have indicasent lights where I reload; no folursecents. Also I have it setting on a level slab of 1" thick (CM-3) granite. Dont know if these things are a factor but it gives me dead on accurate measurements when double checking with my triple beam scale.

Digital reloading scales are not for me. I have a $100 PACT BBKII that sits because 1 it was not consistent at all and 2 florecent lights messed with it the radio messed with it breathing messed with it. If you can't breath while reloading your reloads aren't going to be worth a damn.

Then the load cell went out in it after 6 months. Oh and that nice warranty they talk about doesn't cover the load cell. So it sits in the box on the shelf and my Ohus 1010 (RCBS 1010) sits stop a custom made riser I made for it so that I don't have to bend over. Powder in the plumbers crack sucks.
