    I bought one a few months ago and have been very happy with it.

    I'll go $105. :)

    I'm just to cheap to buy a digital when my beam scale works just fine.

    Hope you like it though.. Until you get powder you can weigh:
    Coins
    Bullets
    Brass
    and many other interesting things
    :)

    Not many people have buyer's remorse with Dillon products.

    Simply put an excellent scale. I also have the analog one however I seldom find myself using anything but the ditigtal (on batteries). Have run several checks over the years and always find it spot on. You made a very good choice for the dollars spent. In fact, of all the Dillin toys I have (e.g. 550B, 600, dies, etc) there's not one item I would give back PERIOD!

    I really like my Dillon Terminator, have had mine for several years. Works well, always accurate with my check weights. If I had to replace it however, would really like to try out the scale Brian Enos offers.
    On a side note, I was developing loads for my new Remington 700 AAC-SD .308 last night. I threw 70 charges of BL (C) -2 with my Hornady Lock-N-Load Auto Charge Powder Dispenser. I had only one “OVERCHARGE” throughout the session and I think I may have attributed to that by accidentally bumping the bench as I was loading.

    That's what I've been hearing!

    No more Lee for me. The furnace is okay, but I'll buy blue from now on.

    If it ever goes belly up after 2yrs, Dillon will replace it for 50% of a new one, a good deal. They do NOT offer no BS warranty on elec stuff.:crying:

    I've had one for about 2 years now and love it. Spot on with my check weights every time and never noticed the"warm up" some people say electric scales need.

    I did. Mostly because I load out in my workshop but keep the scale in the house when not using it. keeps it clean and safe.

    Doh ?
    I have an RCBS/Ohaus 510 beam that is 42 years old and a 502 that I purchased used with a bunch of other stuff. Both work just fine (I've never changed batteries). They hold zero unless you move them. I just can't see the need for a digital.

    With that being said, Dillion Products are top shelf.

    I use a cheap (probably $10 coupon deal) Harbor Freight digital for setting lead shot weight for shot shells. It is not accurate enough for powder.
