RCBS CHARGEMATER LITE REVIEW

RCBS CHARGEMATER LITE REVIEW

I have use this scale for reloading two times before making this video. Both times the scale has worked flawlessly and every charge has been exact with Titegroup powder. I am not a professional reviewer and not an expert reloader, so I may have left something out. Hopefully, this review will be helpful to people who are looking to purchase this scale. I think it is a great piece of equipment and so far I am very satisfied with its performance.

I can’t imagine that they have much of a capability to compensate for voltage drift. 1 thing that I like about the RCBS is that it calibrates at 2 points, ensuring that it’s linear over a span of weights. I wouldn’t worry about a discrepancy of 1 to 2 tenths on the Hornady. One thing that I’ve noticed about… Read more »

Thanks for the review.?? Still don’t trust electronic but sometimes we have to compromise . ? Might want to pick up a cheap $15-20 wawoo scale to check the others, they actually work better than most in the $100 and under class. ?
