    I currently have a RCBS balance beam scale and a low $ Frankford Arsenal digital scale.The digital has some drift and shuts off after a minute or so. Between the both of them I can get a pretty close reading, but its a lot of fiddling.

    So, I'm looking for a better electronic scale with consistant readings and an adjustable shut off timer. My budget is $100 +-.

    Suggestions?

    I bought a PACT scale and then received one (the pro version) as a gift. I have used them both for years and followed the directions exactly and kept static at bay when using or storing them. I think they are very good products and would buy the pro if I lost them, since I do not really need 2 scales and the pro works with the powder dispenser which I have also used for years.
    There are also some other good scales on the market, but I would not buy one that does not come with checkweights. I have also used a lot of FA products over the years and liked them well enough, but that scale and others like it is not something I would buy. Something a bit more substantial is called for, I think.

    I have Berry's MFG ACC-2000 Digital Scale and am really happy with it. It is very fast.
    The scale is $129.99 but with free shipping.

    digital scale, reloading scale, electronic scale

    I've got an older PACT. It has been 100% reliable and accurate
    for at least 10 years, no problems.

    Just picked up a RCBS balance beam to replace a digital scale. I'm done with digital for now they're just to finicky and temperature sensitive.

    Loaded up 50 rounds of .243 a couple weeks back with the RCBS and was really surprised how fast it went.

    I purchased this one My Weigh GemPro 250 after hearing nothing but good things about it from a few members here. So far so good is all I can say.

    Good luck on your search:thumbup:

    you can buy the rcbs charge master scale and if you later decide add on the powder dispenser...

    or get both...

    hornady has a nice powder dispenser for about 200$

    You just about can't go wrong in whatever one you decide on. You get what you pay for. FWIW I have a Dillon D-Terminator and so far have had very good luck with it.
