What powder scale do you use?

I was using a Lyman 1200 for years til it died. Then go a Hornady dispenser. What a piece of junk. Set it at say 45 grs. you'll get from 40 to 50 grs. Bought a Gempro 250 last year, my scores improved big time went from shooting middle of the road NRA expert to high master scores with a few in the highmaster class.

I don't long range hunt but when I reload I use the RCBS that came with the rockchucker set and a trickler. Set the thrower just a tad light and trickle until it levels the scale out.

I use a Redding #2 scale, and a powder trickler.......

I use a Belding and Mull visible powder measure, and once I get the tube set, it throws perfect charges almost every time

Lyman 1200 now, but still have my RCBS beam scale and a RCBS 750 digital scale for a back up.

Ohaus 1010, I have a couple electronic scales that work good but for throwing charges I trust the beam scale much more. I use the electronic scale for sorting bullets and cases.

Can't imagine a Lyman 1200 giving up the ghost. How did that happen?
