    I've been reloading shotgun shells for years but now I'm getting into rifle/pistol reloading. Before I start however I am getting a scale. The one I use for shotguns is one of the balance type, but for my metallic reloading I'm going to get a digital scale. I'm looking at two different models, both are of the sclae/ dispenser combo type, you enter in your charge weight and press dispence, sending a powder charge out into a scale. The two different brands are RCBS and PACT. Anyone have any opinions on these? Are the PACT scales any good?

    PACT scales are very good scales. One word of advice on digital scales though....they are extremely sensitive to any motion. If you have a window open and a breeze comes throught and blows across the scale it won't read till it stops. You might want to set a box or something beside it to block any such nuisance.
