Great scale, You get a metal powder pan with a handle, not a plastic pan as show in the picture. Nice upgrade, you get one 50 grain calibration weight. Not the three in the picture. Over all a great scale for the money. Pros: Small, accurate, easy to read Cons: When trickling, scale can jump thousandsths when using flake powder

I bought this because it seemed like one of the cheapest scales available for reloading. It works, but I think I will be upgrading to a beam scale. I use powder dippers for magnum pistol rounds (10-12.0 gr of powder) and weigh every charge, and I've noticed that when trickling for the last .2gr of powder, this scale will sometimes "jump" to that measurement and not read the .1gr in between. I've heard this is common for digital scales, and that's why I'm opting for the beam, which I'm told are sensitive to even 1 kernel differences from a trickler. For powder measurement, I would not trust this scale for max loads (it seems to vary by .1-.3 grains) but for weighing bullets/cases where .1 gr is not as critical and speed is an issue, this will do the job. Pros: Very easy to use and calibrate, comes with soft case and check weight Cons: After calibrating, it does not accurately measure check weight (gives 49.995g instead of 50.000 g). Sometimes "jumps" .2 grains when using a trickler.

I thought I would buy this scale as a backup to my balance scale. Turns out, it's become my primary. It's every bit as accurate as my balance scale and is easier to read, especially for us old guys. It's well worth the money and makes reloading a pleasure. Pros: Inexpensive, accurate, easy to read display Cons: none

I bought this scale just to double check my lee balance scale and it may just replace it. I reload a moderate amount each week and for the money, this has proven to be a great scale so far. I zero it with each use with the 50g weight that comes with it and it's usually +/- 1/10th of a grain. Good product for a great price. Pros: Price, ease of use, Cons: Non yet

no need to spend big bucks on a scale these work just fine after my rcbs scales gave up the ghost (after many years of service)I purchased a set of ds-750 digital reloading scales from planet optics to check my powder weights, they are top shelf, very accurate, don't take up much room on the reloading bench and easy to read for old eyes I have checked them out for accuracy with my rcbs 505 beam scales often and they perform very well every time.....

The scale is exactly what it is advertised. It is accurate, quick & easy to use! The included instructions are clear and easily followed. I checked it with a set of certified "check weights" and the values are dead on! As soon as I received the scale, I immediately began to use it!! I checked the values on an RCBS/Ohaus beam scale & the difference in weights was nil! But what an improvement in speed! The scale takes up very little room on my bench, which is great!! It is also small enough to be portable & requires very little space for storage! It is quick, accurate & easy to use. What more can a person ask? Based upon my experience, I would definitely recommend it to a friend! It does the job!

You can spend a lot of money on a scale or not. I would suggest NOT. This is the best darned little scale you could ask for at a great low price. Agrees to the 1/10th grain with my balance scale. Fast readings, easy to use, compact. I was sceptical that a $30 scale could be any good. Have no fear. A great purchase.

I recommend this little DS-750 Digital Reloading Scale to anyone out there who do not want to pay a lot for a digital scale. The only down fall I do not like about this Digital Scale is that it automaticly turn off early while I am still using it.

This is a great scale for the money. I'm new to reloading and just wanted something accurate to double check my Lee scale and this has pretty much become my go-to scale. I load a couple hundred rounds a session and this scale has kept up nicely. Hard to believe that it's worked so well - I'm a fan! Pros: Ease of setup, easy to use, accurate, simple calibration
