    Would like to get an electronic scale to speed up my reloading of shotshells. Are they accurate? What are trusted brands to get?

    I now use a "Cabelas" brand one. The Lyman didn't work good for me. Do you mean a dispenser? I just use mine to calibrate a powder drop and go.

    My cheap Midway scale works great. Just double check with beam scale with same weights and check after a few to be sure nothing has changed....:thumbup:

    I've got a Lyman 1200 and I love it. I even check my loads every 20 rounds to make sure it's still calibrated correctly. Mine never did like Accurate #5 though. It's really tiny and I had feed problems. Green dot, Blc-2, H 380, Win 231 all have worked well.
