    I owned a Lyman case trimmer and it was absolute junk. Half of the caliber heads didn't fit in the trimmer shaft. Also the lock rings wouldn't stay locked. After this I bought a RCBS and had zero troubles. There is a reason why Lyman is cheaper than most of its competitors.

    RCBS is the best IMHO and their customer service is unmatched. Have a problem with their stuff, even years after you bought it, they will make it right.

    I use a LEE Balance beam scale, it came in the reloading kit. I think the entire kit was $100. I've added to the kit but the scale work just fine for me. I've been using it for over 15years. I don't mind re-loading taking time, I find it relaxing. I only load about 1-200 rounds per year though.

    I concur with BB and Umpqua Hunter! I have utilized both and after I purchased the RCBS chargemaster I will never look back. Came close to cutting my reload time in half and I am extremely meticulous about my loads as I am sure most guys are. Spend the money plus RCBS is good to work with if you ever had any issues. I happen to live 45 minutes from them and fortunately haven't had a reason to go there.

    I have been using balance beam scales for almost 50 years (Texan, Lyman, Hornady). They are simple, accurate, and rugged. No reason to change at this late date.
