Cheep scale gage?

Does anyone know of a reliable item to use as a powder scale gage?

Several manufacturers offer scale weight kits. These are precise weights you use to adjust your scale. Look at Brownells, Midway, Lockstock or any of the others. Good luck.

I don't have a checker myself but, I allways have one or two store bought bullets and what I do is check my scale aginst the wieght of the bullet, if is a 150 grain bullet, my scale should read 150 (this seems to be good enough for me) if it is out alittle no big deal ,I know I won't blow myself up! by a over charge! If it is accuracy you want I would look to the digital scales they come with checker's and never drift out.
