Q: My scale reads – OUT2. What does this mean?
A: The load cell has been permanently damaged due to overloading or falling from a height.
Q: My scale reads – O-Ld. What does this mean?
A:The maximum capacity has been exceeded. Remove the extra weight to avoid permanently damaging the load cell.
Q: My scale reads – Lo. What does this mean?
A: Batteries are low. You need to replace the batteries.
Q: My scale reads – UNSE. What does this mean?
A: The scale is unstable or in motion. Use in a more stable position.
- Never load the scale with more than the maximum capacity. Overloading can permenantly damage it!
- Avoid any exposure to extreme hot or cold. Your scale will work best at normal room temperature. Always allow your scale to acclimate to normal room temperature for at least an hour before use.
- Give your scale significant time to warm up. Usually 30 seconds will give the internal components a chance to stablize before calibration.
- Keep your scale in a clean evniornment. Dust, dirt, moisture, vibration, air currents and a close distance to other electronic equiptment can cause an adverse effect on the reliability and accuracy of your scale.
- Handle with care. Gently apply all items to be weighed onto the tray top. Although this scale is designed to be quite durable, try to avoid rough treatment as this may damage the internal sensor.
- Avoid shaking, dropping, or otherwise the scale. This is a precision instrument and must be handled with extreme care.
- Only operate the scale on a stable, vibration free surface.

I have reloaded for over 24 years using an RCBS 10-10 balance scale. It has served me well but a balance scale is way to slow to weigh a lot of bullets or cases. I just couldn't see spending $150 or more on a mid-range reloading scale when I already had the 10-10 scale. At this low price I thought why not try it?
I first checked it several times against the included check weight and my RCBS check weight. It varies by 0.1 - 0.2 grains from one weighing to another of the same 250 grain check weight. Not bad, as a balance scale is probably within 0.1 gr +/- just from the visual judgement.
Next, I weighed about 350 .223 Rem cases to sort them by headstamp and weight range. Now I am impressed. The scale registered within about one second and I was able to go through the whole batch about as quickly as I could move the cases on and off the scale. Cases of the same headstamp averaged variance of a couple of grains with a few outliers of a few grains variance. +/- 0.2 gr was insignificant for this as well as for weighing bullets.
Finally I threw my current load of 26.4 gr of powder from my powder measure, double checked it on the RCBS 10-10 balance scale and it was dead on with the Frankford scale. I removed the pan with the powder on it and replaced it to see if it would register teh same weight, and repeated this many times. Again, the Frankford scale read the same weight +/- 0.1 gr.
I am very happy with this little scale. It is perfectly suitable for weighing cases and bullets.Read more ›
Following the instructions on first use is a must.
Give the unit 30 seconds to equalize.
calibrate per instructions. Id recommend tossing the battery's it comes with, the battery's I received were almost dead. This unit is sensitive to battery voltage the weaker the battery's the more error prone it seems to be. I tested this with known (low batteries) One issue that bugged me was weighing the 50g weight resulted in a reading of 49.995 and 49.985 respectively. This could be a rounding issue or just the limit of the scale as a 10g weight was spot on.
All in all for the price its worth having around. The pad where you place the powder dish is large enough so that if you do place the pan off center you will still get an accurate reading.
Id recommend picking up the RCBS powder dish and funnel for this unit. The included aluminum pan seems to build up a charge allowing ball powders to stick. Using a dryer sheet helps but not for long.
All in all a great scale for moderate load development.
I'm using the grain mode for powder, and the ounce mode for shot, and they both seem to work very well. The only complaint I have so far, is I would like the unit indicator on the LCD display to be a little larger and easier to read.

I'm happy with it. It does drift, so you have to work fast and calibrate it every so often. But I got what I needed out of it until I can afford to upgrade.Published 15 days ago by this guy
