Do any of you have suggestions for good, accurate electronic powder measures?

Hi Lane. I am a bit dubious about all of them, none of the reloading units are lab grade. It can go either way. Sometimes a $10 elcheapo can perform better than a more expensive (yet still not lab grade) unit. They also do annoying things like turn off after a short while if you are not quick enough- peeves everyone off.

Forum member Jon Short sent me a $10 jobby simply becuase he had just bought the same from a Chinese retailer and it turned out to be more accurate than most. The one he sent me was the same. So you never know, everything simply has to be tested.

I used a small fankford arsenal scale and found it bang on for weight (checked against my paint scales at work) but my phone effected it and it would sometimes skip .1 of a grain going from say 53.4 to 53.6 not ideal but before I knew better I made do

Relative to Chris' experience, I had a Frankford vernier that was effected by fluorescent lighting. You may want to test the scales under and then away from these lights. (Frankford replaced them at no cost. Great company to deal with.)
