    I don't do any match shooting though I am interested in doing so with my Garand. I mostly load for hunting, plinking and punching holes in paper at the range. I run a progressive press with throw type powder measure that doesn't have nearly the accuracy of a powder trickler and an Ohaus beam scale but it has produced plenty of nice ammo.

    Ebay / Amazon literally has thousands of digital scales to choose from under $20. Just choose one that measures down to 0.01 gram. A 0.1 gram scale is not enough. Important to note that your powder scale is far more accurate.
    A previous post mentioned static electrical charge causing the really fine gold to cling to surfaces. This can be prevented by wiping everything down with an anti static dryer sheet. (ask your wife, she knows)

    I really wish I would have ordered one that went to at least .01g, although .001g would obviously be even better. I was having a difficult time trying to find one online that had favorable reviews and didn't cost a fortune and was more fine-tuned than just .1g.

    If your just weighing for personal info , buy a cheap one and if your buying or selling gold buy a GOOD and ACURATE scale. I found that if it doesn't have REPEATABILITY DONT buy it or youll lose!
