    Well i scored a powder scale from the same guy i got all the 10mm brass from. its a RCBS 10-10 and its in great shape and reads dead nuts. and to think i picked it up for 50 bucks :D. From what i have seen that is a good deal. allot better then paying 23 bucks for the lee scale :rofl: ;) its amazing how nice this scale is :faint:. anything i should check or do to this as it is a used scale?

    Well, if you've confirmed it reads "dead nuts" with some sort of check weight, then just keep it clean. That's a great price on a quality scale.

    I have a weight or two but usually just use a bullet of a known weight.

    $50 for an RCBS 10-10 is fantastic deal.

    The extra nice thing about it is it's an RCBS.

    I knocked my 25 year old RCBS 5-0-5 on the floor last year. I called RCBS and they gave me an RMA number to ship it back to OHAUS. OHAUS sent me a new 5-0-5 free of charge.
