Great Scale For The Money 10/01/2020 1:51:48 PM

I saw good reviews on the Reloading forums, so decided to try it. It performs very consistently, and I am able to load match grade ammo with it!

This one works very good. 08/29/2020 7:50:38 PM

After trying a few others I'm real happy with this scale. It does not drift at all.

OK for $50 08/24/2020 3:11:53 PM

It replaced a Hornady digital scale that measured in tenths of grains while this one measures in hundredths of grains. I thought this was necessary for precision loads but for the average reloader the Hornady scale would suffice while being cheaper and easier to use with a powder trickler due to it's shorter height and smaller footprint.
The BE1188 scale takes longer to settle into a weight and needs to be "tared" about every 5 rounds. Don't know why it won't stay stabilized.
In my opinion, my Hornady balance beam scale is still the best if you want utmost dependable precision. It isn't as convenient though.

Using it for reloading and other measurements, works fine, calibrates easy, no fuss, no muss.

I use this scale to measure powder charges for reloading cartridges and found it to be very accurate and repeatable. I have had to re-tare if its not used for over 30 minutes. I use shop-grade test weights to check and it's never more than 0.02 grains off and usually right on using charge weights of 25.10 gns.

I love that it never goes off when on AC power.

Very good powder measuring scale 10/30/2019 5:59:37 PM

I have used all kinds of powder scales over the years, from balance beams to various digital scales. I still prefer trickling powder on a balance beam scale, but the digital scales do offer a better way to weigh bullets and cases. The digital scales are faster and accurate enough for bullets, cases and to confirm your powder settings on a balance scale. I have had four different electronic digital scales so far, and I have not been overly happy with any of them for two main reasons: One is that they are not stable over time. They all seem to drift and then give readings that I know aren't correct. Once this happens then you have to recheck calibration, and then reset the tare function all over again. Number two is that most scales are only accurate to +/- one tenth of a grain. At first glance this seems plenty accurate, but really think about this for a moment..".+/- one" really equals two tenths of a grain of powder. This could be dangerous in small caliber rifle cartridges and light pistol loads. And it is not good enough for precision/competition long range rifle loads.
The main reason I bought the BE1188 powder scale because I wanted to try a scale that is more accurate in that it displays weight down to one hundredth of a grain. The other reasons I bought this scale was because of the great price and that it will run on home power or batteries. Very nice that I can take it with me to the range for loading on site. I have only had this scale for approximately one month, but so far I am more pleased with this than any other electronic digital scale I have had so far. This scale still has drift like all the other scales, but it doesn't seem to be as much or as often. I can even trickle powder using this scale....most scales don't behave well when trickling. In the end, for the price and features, this scale is hard to beat for what it is. Yes, I would recommend this powder scale to anyone.

A friend recommended I get this scale to weigh my gunpowder. I owe him a thank you.

The scale requires zeroing out the tare setting more than I like, but when it holds zero its great. Im going to try a few things to cure the issue.
