I use a RCBS 1010, after having trouble with an unstable transducer in a RCBS electronic scale.

My reloading bench is level enough and flat enough that I can put the scale anywhere and have it provide accurate and repeatable measurements, after zeroing.

I use a powder measure and check the charge weight every box, when I pause to label things. This turns out to be every 50 for pistol and every 20 for rifle.

The powder measures have a Unitek micrometer knob, and I use the value I recorded in my reloading spreadsheet to set it up when trying to duplicate a load. It doesn't elminate the need to check the weight of the charge, but it makes getting to the desired weight a lot faster.
