First thing I would do is get a set of check weights (just to be sure it is measuring correctly) or put a bullet on the side that you can use as a check weight, say a 230 grain 45 ACP (and record the exact weight of that bullet). Then use it later to double check that the scale has not drifted.

I use the 1500 and leave it warm up for about an hour before I use the scale. And will ocasionally check it agains a balance beam scale to insure I am getting the right readings. (not very often do I check it)

As the electronic scales warm up, the little sensor that weighs the loads, will change so it is a good idea to every now and then (one hour) reset the zero. This is normal for an electronic scale that uses 110 volts.

Si vis pacem, para bellum
